"I sprang upon the swift ship in the form of a dolphin, pray to me as Apollo Delphinius; also the altar itself shall be called Delphinius and overlooked forever."

The Oracle is an Ancient Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on Hills.

StrategyEdit

The Oracle's yield bonuses are useful for civilizations with either a cultural or religious bent, but its bonuses to Great Person acquisition are more useful still. Pedro II's Brazil can make good use of this wonder by building it in a city with many districts, developing their cities' Holy Sites, and using the Civ6Faith Faith they accumulate to patronize Great People at 80% of the usual cost.

Note that the Oracle's bonus does not promote the generation of Great Writers, Artists and Musicians in the Lavra. Also, to get +2 Great Person Points for a district, it's required to build its 2 first buildings.

Civilopedia entry Edit

Of all the places in ancient Greece where priestesses uttered prognostications, by far the most famous (and cryptic) was the Oracle at Delphi, a shrine to Apollo located on the slopes of Mount Parnassus. There a priestess known as the “Pythia” would – for suitable compensation – interpret dreams, commune with the gods while in a trance, and read the signs in the entrails of sacrificed animals (chickens for the cheap, or goats for those willing to pay more). The Oracle began operation as early as 1400 BC, and enjoyed a thriving business until Christianity arrived with the Romans. The greatest structure was the stately temple to Apollo (of course), and it stayed standing until pulled down on orders from Theodosius I in 390 AD. The site remained an active “pagan” center throughout the 4th Century, however, and the Pythian Games (a predecessor to the Olympics today) continued to at least 424 AD.
