Zeus Bouleus
Dodonian Zeus or Zeus of Dodonia may refer to either of two figures who were worshipped at Dodona, the oldest oracle of the ancient Greeks:Zeus Naos ("Zeus of the Naiads") Zeus Bouleus ("Zeus the Counselor")Overview[edit] Dodona
Dodona
was an ancient oracle located in the region of Epirus in northwestern Greece (“Dodona”, Encyclopædia Britannica). The word Epirus means infinite Earth. The Greeks saw Eprius as a wilderness filled with barbarians ("Athens Greece Guide"). The ruins are located in Dramisos, near Tsacharovista (Ewegen). The name of the oracle is derived from Dodone, which is an oceanic nymph (Nicol, page 128). The Callimachus, Aitia Fragment 2.7 explains how Dodone was named: "Dodone: it gets its name, according to Epaphroditos in his commentary on Aitia 2, from Dodona, one of the Nymphai Okeanides." It was created to honor the Greek God Zeus. At Dodona, Zeus was known as “Zeus Bouleus”
