Death of the Miser


The Roman emperor Nero thought of paying a visit to Delphi during A.D. 63-65. Due to pressure of work he could visit it only in A.D 67. He reached there after a long and tiring journey. As soon as Nero entered the temple, the Pythia present there screamed. “Get out, go away, killer of your mother. Beware of the figure of 73.” Nero felt outraged. He immediately ordered that the priests and that Pythia be buried alive after their hands and legs had been chopped off. When these unfortunate people were being buried, Nero was himself supervising the destruction of the temple.
