Python

Mythological Dictionary

Apollo established the major sanctuary for his worship and his oracle at Delphi, but to do so he had to kill the serpent which guarded the site. He named his new sanctuary Pytho, from the rotting of the serpent after it had been killed (the Greek verb pythein means to rot); or the serpent's name was Python. A python today belongs to a particular family of non-venomous old world snakes.
