Delphi -- History and Mythology (1185 words)
7th century BC: the seat of the Amphictyony (an association of Greek states) was transferred to Delphi, which was now declared an independent town no longer under the control of the Phocians in whose territory the sanctuary was located.
During the course of the 8th and 7th centuries BC, the sanctuary grew in prestige as it received splendid dedications from legendary kings such as Gyges and Midas.
Its political role expanded in the 7th century BC, when it became the seat of the Amphictyony, and individual cities began to build along the Sacred Way leading up to the temple - treasuries in which the cities' dedications to Apollo were guarded, and monuments commemorating the cities' successes.
