A colossal serpent that was kept in the Garden of Apollo along with other Dragons. The Dragons of these gardens were descendents of the Python of Delphi and thus they could predict the future. Each year a naked maiden was sent to offer food to Epirotes. If the Dragon accepted the food then the coming year will be full of success. If the Dragon refuses the food then the following year would be full of disaster.
