Astrology & Sacred Sites: The Temple of the Oracle of Apollon Claros
The Temple of the Oracle of Apollon Claros was an ancient Greek oracle temple on the Ionian coast dedicated to Apollon the god of light as Apollon Clarios. It was located 12 km south of the ancient City of Colophon, one of the twelve Ionic cities. The Temple of Apollo at Claros was one of the most important ancient greek oracles together with Delphi, Didyma and others.

According to the wiki article “….. The oldest information about this sacred site goes back to the sixth and seventh centuries BC. through the Homeric Hymns. A sacred cave near the Temple of Apollo, which was an important place both in the Hellenistic and Roman eras, points to the existence of a Cybele cult in earlier periods here. Games called the Claria were held at Claros every fifth year in honor of Apollo….. Archaeological excavations revealed structures dating back to the 10th century BC. The founding myth of Claros connects the city with the myth of the Epigoni who conquered Thebes.The two seers Teiresias and his daughter Manto became their captives along with other Thebans. The Epigoni sent them to Delphi to honor Apollo, but Teiresias died on the journey. At Delphi, Manto was commanded by Apollo to sail to Ionia with the remaining Thebans to found a colony there. When they arrived at the site where Claros would be founded later, they were seized by armed Cretans under Rhacius, the Cretan settler of Caria. After learning from Manto who they were and why they had come, Rhacius married her and allowed the Thebans to found Claros. Their heir was the seer Mopsus.….. Thus the origin of the oracle at Clarus was remembered by Greeks of the Classical period as Minoan–Mycenean in origin. Archaeological investigations lend support to the myth…… According to another legend…….. the Greek seer Calchas, a participant in the Trojan War, died at Claros. He challenged Mopsus to see who had the greatest skill in divination, but lost and died of grief. ” ”
