This bit's from the original recensions of the Alexander Romance. (Book 1, Chapter 15)
pythia of Delphi would sit on a tall-legged tripod chair placed over
the cracks on the floor of the temple, which emitted hallucinogenic
vapors - the source of her prophecies. She carried a sprig of laurel and
a scrying bowl containing spring water. The place where she sat was
off-limits to outsiders.
