1. General info

Dodona in Epirus in northwestern Greece was the oldest Hellenic oracle, possibly dating to the second millennium BCE according to Herodotus. The earliest accounts in Homer describe Dodona as an oracle of Zeus. Situated in a remote region away from the main Greek poleis, it was considered second only to the Oracle of Delphi in prestige. Priestesses and priests interpreted the rustling of the leaves of the oak trees by the wind to determine the correct actions to be taken.

Looking back at the history of the game of predicting, one can conclude that it remained the same. The art of prediction has always been an extremly valuable skill, and the ability to anticipate future events and trends can be incredibly lucrative in many fields.

While the tools and methods used for prediction have evolved over time, the underlying principles have remained the same. Successful predictors are able to gather and analyze data, identify patterns and trends, and use their insights to make informed decisions.

Nevertheless, predicting the future is not an exact science. Even the most skilled and experienced predictors can be wrong, and unforeseen events can throw carefully crafted predictions off course. That being said, those who are able to consistently make accurate predictions are highly valued in many industries.
