It is here in this photo of Nekromanteion where we caught Achiles. According to our guide, Achiles came to this oracle. It was in his journey to river Styxx. But here, in this oracle Achiles found out something about his future.

No, this is not Achiles, it is but the gate to Nekromanteion and to the underworld. Here at the gate you met the souls of the dead in Nekromanteion and here they spoke. Read more about the Nekromanteion where you could talk to the dead.

During the ritual, if the dead answered yes to your question from this huge jar came wine. If they said no, it was only water. This was the ritual at Nekromanteion.
