Alun Salt describes how he figured out that the planting and harvesting of crops in the vicinity of Delphi were governed by the rising constellation of Apollo Delphinios on the horizon, from reading Hesiod and mucking about with a planisphere in a fit of insomnia.
It seems that it was because it was a later period in the year that Apollo Delphinios rose over the high cliff walls of the Delphi, according to Efrosyni Boutsikas.

The researchers from the School of Archaeology and Ancient History sought to explain how people from across Greece came to consult with the Oracle — a hotline to the god Apollo- on a particular day of the year even though there was no common calendar.
This is when I noticed that the constellation Delphinus would have been rising in the eastern sky in late December and early January.
The problem was that January wasn’t the time Apollo Delphinios was questioned at Delphi.

In the inner εστία (hestia), or hearth, of the Temple of Delphic Apollo (Απόλλων Δελφίνιος — Apollon Delphinios), an άσβεστος φλόγα (eternal flame) burned.

After Apollo killed the she-serpent and built a temple for his oracle near the port of Krisa, he needed men to serve as his priests.

An etiological myth is a myth intended to explain a name or create a mythic history for a place or family.
For example, the name Delphoi and its associated deity, Apollon Delphinios, are explained in the Homeric Hymn which tells how Apollo carried Cretans over the sea in the shape of a dolphin to make them his priests.
While there is an actual etymological connection between Delphoi and delphis (delphus means "womb"), many etiological myths are based on popular etymology (the term "Amazon", for example).

The god became known as Apollo Pythias and the area was called Delphi from that time on.

 Archaic and Classical cult-related graffiti from the Northern Black Sea region
After each of these key aspects of preliminary study are established, new interpretations for the significance of each text and object are proposed, although some problems necessarily remain unresolved due to lack of sufficient evidence.
Each graffito yields valuable information on such aspects of local Greek religious life as the calendar in Olbia, the aspects of Apollo chosen for emphasis by local cults, such as letros and Delphinios, the role of Hermes' cult in the region, and the presence in Berezan of an Orphic-like hebdomadic cult group, connected to Apollo.
The general picture yielded by these graffiti as a group is of a rich and varied religious life in Olbia and Berezan, grounded in the traditions of the mother-city, Miletus, but growing and developing on its own as well, and placing particular emphasis on individual cult aspects which suit the needs of these young colonies.

Through the partly reconstructed propylon we enter the large rectangular temenos in which the temple lies.
From the south wall of the temenos we can look down into an excavated area on a lower level in which, among other structures, the foundations of the temple of Apollo Delphinios and the large rectangle of the Penhellenion can be distinguished.
They are among the many temples and shrines on the banks of the Ilissos, which flows underground through this area; others include the temple of Aphrodite in the gardens on the right bank of the stream, the Metroon and the shrine of Artemis Agrotera on the left bank.

Unabashed, the Pythia retorted that Croesus had failed to follow up on the first response and ask which empire would fall (Figure 2).
We have no evidence for the worship of Apollo at Delphi before the eighth century BC when, according to tradition, the cult of Apollo Delphinios was introduced by priests from Knossos.
The Delphic oracle became internationally renowned and the Greeks would not undertake any major endeavour before seeking the advice of the Pythia.

 Apollo
However, to make amends for killing Python, as the fearsome beast was the son of Gaia, Apollo had to serve king Admetus for nine years (in some versions eight) as a cowherd.
This he did, and when he returned to Pytho he came in the guise of a dolphin bringing with him priests from Crete (Apollo's cult title "Delphinios" meaning dolphin or porpoise, is probably how Delphi was so named).
After killing Python and taking possession of the oracle, the god of light (Phobus) became known as "Pythian Apollo".

Located about 2, 000 feet above sea level, Delphi sits on a southern spur of Mt. Parnassus, north of the central Corinthian Gulf, in the region once known as Phocis.
The name Delphi may commemorate Apollo's cult title Delphinios (meaning dolphin or porpoise).
The site, terraced into the mountainside, was thought to be the center of the world, and one of Delphi's relics was a carved "navel stone" (omphalos) symbolizing this geographic position.
