Τhe "Know Thyself", the ¨Ε¨ of Delphi and the "Nothing in Excess"

του Μ π ο υ ζ ά ν η Κ. Ι. - by B o u z a n i s Κ. -

The ¨Ε¨ of Delphi, the "Know Thyself" and the "Nothing in Excess"
    Plutarch, biographer and philosopher from Chaeronea in Boeotia (46-127 AD) who served as lord of Delphi, will deal with "of Delphi E" without, however, becoming particularly explicit. The description of the famous inscription at Delphi, according to tradition, came from the wooden pediment at the prehistoric temple of Apollo and, when recording and reading it needed the Palaiogrammiko System of Writing & Reading and, certainly, nothing meant its trisection of.
    Imagine, then, the triangular pediment with the "Know thyself" and the "Nothing in excess" symmetrical, right and left, and the "E" or "H", "the presiding those" at the top. An index of suspicion in, literate visitor without the "E" had in front of him an incomplete palindrome inscription!
ΓΝΘ  ΣΤ      ΜΔΝ  Γ
with the missing point: "T"! Completed the inscription:
ΓΝώΘι ΣαυΤόν Τo ΜηΔέΝ άΓαν
"Know to yourself that the zero is something very excessive!"
    In free translation: Learn this! Meet this! Tell yourself that even the "nothing" is "too much", is "an exaggeration"!
    If we lift the veil of poetic art and fiction, we will distinguish the Pythona**, the trade, the trade station of Delphi who, when it declined gave its place to the spirit, namely at the Apollonian light, and there founded an ancient university with departments of Philosophy***, of Strategic Studies and Personal & International Affairs****, with a global reach.

** Python = carious, putrid (decadent).
*** From the pediment of the temple and the known Delphic Οrders.
**** The Oracle.
