Python was a dragon and the offspring of Gaea.


According to myth, Apollo slew Python, the dragon of Mount Parnassus, and disposed of its carcass in a crevice from which the serpent's fumes were inhaled by the Pythía for her predictions.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

In classical mythology, Python was a giant serpent, born out of the earth. According to legend, it terrorised the countryside on the outskirts of Delphi, until it was fought and killed by Apollo who established the Oracle of Delphi to commemorate his victory.
