Transcript PART OF THE TOWN OF LIVADIA, ON THE RIVER HERCYNA, ANCIENT LEBADIA. u Aeftadia Fkoriv ottov AuogTpocpoJviov jxavTeiov 'IcpvTat ^ttoy/arog vizovb^xov kaTci- flaaiv eyov' KaTctftdivei c dvTog b xprjaTrjpia^b/jevog" Strabo, X. " At Lebadia is the Oracle of Jupiter Trophonius, constructed over the mouth of a subterranean chasm, into which the person who seeks the response descends.''—J. P. w Autumni fere tempus erat, cujus temporis initio circumeundam Graeciam visendaque quae nobilitata fama magis auribus accepta sunt quam oculis noscuntur, Lebadiae templum Jo vis Trophonii adiit. Ibi quum vidisset os specus per quod oraculo utentes sciscitatum Deos descendunt, sacrificium fecit Jovi Hercynnaeque, quorum ibi templum est."—Livy, XLV. " About the commencement of autumn he determined to make the tour of Greece, and to visit the places, which, consecrated by ancient fame, derive their interest not so much from what is seen by the eye, as from what the ear has heard concerning them. At Lebadia, accordingly, he visited the temple of Jupiter Trophonius, and inspected the mouth of the chasm into which those who consult the oracle descend to interrogate the Gods. There, too, he offered sacrifice to Jupiter and Hercyna, who have a common temple in the city.''—J. P. " Ut vidit vastos telluris hiatus Divinam spirare fidem, ventosque loquaces Exhalare solum, sacris se condidit antris, Incubuitque adyto vates." Lucan. Phars. V.
