PaUSAN. X. " As you ascend towards the temple, you observe, on the right of the path, the fountain of Castalia, of which the water is sweet even to the palate. Higher up the mountain than the town, is the sacred inclosure of Apollo, which is of great extent, and almost equal to the rest of the city." H Parnassia rupes Hinc atque hinc patula praepandit cornua fronte, Castaliaeque sonans liquido pede lab«tur unda." " On either side sublime Broad-browed Parnassus rears his horned hill; And with soft tinkling chime, And liquid foot, glides on Castalia's rill." Virgil. Calex. J. P.

The influence of its god has controlled the councils of states, directed the course of armies, and decided the fate of kingdoms. The ancient history of Greece is full of energy, and an early register of his authority. The city was seated on a high rock, with the oracle above it; and was in circuit sixteen stadia, or two miles. The natural strength of the place excited admiration as much as the majesty of the God. The Temple of Apollo is described by Pausanias. The pediments were adorned with Diana, and Apollo, and the Muses; the setting of Phoebus, or the sun; with Bacchus, and the women called Thyades. The architraves were decorated with golden armour, bucklers suspended by the Athenians after the battle of Marathon, and shields taken from the Gauls under Brennus. In the portico were inscribed the celebrated maxims of the seven sages of Greece. There was an image of Homer, and in the cell was an altar of Neptune, with statues of the Fates, and of Jupiter and Apollo, who were surnamed Leaders of the Fates. Near the hearth before the altar at which Neoptolemus, the son of Achilles, was slain by a priest, stood the iron chair of Pindar. In the sanctuary was an image of Apollo gilded. The inclosure was of great extent, and filled with treasuries, in which many cities had consecrated tenths of spoil taken in war, and with the
