190–193 (“Then mad frenzy flows through her foaming lips, groans and loud panting cries; and then when the maiden was at last subdued a dismal wail and finally words sounded in the vast caves”). Parke and Wormell (1956: 12–13) see a possible origin of the Pythia’s enthousiasmos in the cult of Dionysos, in which female devotees engaged in frenzied orgiastic rites. This would appear to be supported by ancient descriptions of the Temple of Apollo’s adyton, which contained a Tomb of Dionysos. The authors also suggest a survival, in the “excited element” of Delphic prophesy, of pre-Hellenistic cultic frenzy as represented on Minoan gems.
