The Priestess of Pythian Apollo: “First, in this prayer of mine, I give the place of highest honor among the [Goddesses and G]ods to the first prophet, Earth [Gaia]; and after her to Themis, for she was the second to take this oracular seat of her mother, as legend tells. And in the third allotment, with Themis' consent and not by force, another Titan, child of Earth, Phoebe, took her seat here. She gave it as a birthday gift to Phoebus [Apollo], who has his name from Phoebe.” Aeschylus, Eumenides 1 ff (trans.
