Erythrean Sibyl - Chart or Kit
One of a collection of fine art paintings beautifully depicted in Cross Stitch from the Cross Stitch Collectibles Collection. A Renaissance fine art religion piece by the artist Michelangelo.
The Erythraean Sibyl was the prophetess of classical antiquity presiding over the Apollonian oracle at Erythrae, a town in Ionia opposite Chios, which was built by Neleus, the son of Codrus.
The word Sibyl comes (via Latin) from the ancient Greek word sibylla, meaning prophetess. Sibyls would give answers whose value depended upon good questions - unlike prophets who typically answered with responses indirectly related to questions asked. There were many Sibyls in the ancient world, but this oracle prophesied Alexander the Great's divine parentage, according to legend.
