The Omphalos was an ancient, bullet-shaped meteorite which provided visions of the future to those who held it.

The stone artifact was considered to be at the heart of the Oracle at Delphi and was thought to mark the Earth's "navel", the translation of the word in Greek.


According to one ancient account, a meteorite struck the earth in front of Merlin during his travels. He eventually saw it buried in Delphi, Greece where it took on the name Ompahlos.[2]

Indiana Jones later uncovered the Omphalos in 1922.[1]

A real omphalos.

Multiple omphaloi exist in the real world. A larger example of the bullet-shaped omphalos that Indiana Jones found is on display in Delphi.
