2. I had heard that Acropolis of Athens and the Temple of Aphaia on Aegina island equidistant from Poseidon Temple in Sounion

I was very impressed!

Slide 7:

Acropolis of Athens and Olympia equidistant from Delphi!!!! 121 km

Slide 8:

In the same way … … Delphi equidistant from Dodona and Dion ( 195 km ) . The oracle of Delphi has been measured to be the apex of isosceles triangles... connecting the 4 other temples together!

Slide 9:

It was found that the Ancient Greeks built the temples at equal distances from DELPHI, so it was called "Navel (Omphalos) of the Earth '! This is, then, the true meaning of 'Navel'! DELPHI: “Navel of the World”
