Necromanteion

One of the most famous oracles of antiquity is the Necromancy of Acheron. It was discovered in the Decade of ‘ 60 and was dedicated to Hades, Zeus’s brother and God of death. According to legend, Hermes was leading the souls in purgatory through the waters of the river. From the point of the Oracle Ulysses descended to the underworld in order to meet Tiresias, to get Oracle and return to Ithaca. Greeks in ancient times believed that the dead had the ability to predict the future. Therefore, those who visited the Oracle addressed for oracles in the souls of the dead and not to the gods.
