Dodona

Greek - The oracle of Zeus: the land of the talking oak trees. The oracle was established when a pigeon, flying from Egypt, settled on a branch and ordered that an oracle be set up. The oracle was interpreted from the rustling of the leaves, the noise of a fountain or the cooing of doves. The grove was attended by the Selli (priests) and the Peleiai (priestesses). Occasionally known as Dodona, Chaonia or Chaonia.
