Crete and Delfi

Cretans founded the Mother Earth shrine at Delfi, and left their sacred music, rituals, dances, and calendar as a legacy to the Hellenes (Greeks). The association of priests at Delfi was called the Labrydae, from the Cretan word Labrys (double axe), a symbol of the Minoan civilization.
