The Last Prophecy from Delphi

to the Julian the Apostate:

"Tell to the king that the carven hall is fallen in decay;
Apollo has no chapel left, no prophesying bay,
No talking spring. The stream is dry that had so much to say.


This was mentioned in passing during In Our Time's Delphi programme and I had to track it down.
