The Pyhthoness

The Phythoness, was the event of when the Pythia, more commonly known as the Oracle of Delphi, would sit on a tripod interpreting her divination. The Oracle or Pythia was the name given to any priestess whom was working in the Temple of Apollo. In regards to this illustration the priestess appears to be in agony, whilst she is surrounded by other prophets. The location in which they are in is the Temple of Apollo, which was located in Delphi. Date: 8 B.C

German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1

A huge German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens on 8th August 1918 became a source of some Allied controversy. The Australian 31st Battalion effected its capture, but, in the wake of the continued Allied advance, the gun received a large painted inscription stating that the gun had been captured by the British 4th Army (see picture) of which the ANZAC Corps was a component. A thorough investigation was made of the circumstances of the gun's capture - an insightful example of the contested nature of war material involving notions of identity and ownership - before it was finally transported to Australia for public display (AWM Archive). The gun was originally intended for naval use, mounted in the battleship SMS Hessen. Date: 1918
