Sybil, her name means (cave dweller) was one of ten well known prophets from the ancient world, she was from Cumae, a place near Naples, there she lived in an enormous cave with a 375 foot entranceway and a 60 foot ceiling. Sybil wrote her prophecies on leaves, these prophecies she placed at the mouth of her cave, if her messages were unread they were scattered by the winds, sometimes the leaves were bound into books. On one occasion Sybil attempted to sell nine volumes of her prophecies to Tarquin II of Rome at an exorbitant price. Sybil then burned three volumes and offered the remaining six volumes at the same price, Taquin again refused and Sybil burned another three volumes, again asking the original price for the remaining three. The king felt he may be missing out on something and paid Sybil the original asking price for the last three volumes. These prophecies were treated with great reverence, being kept carefully in the Capitol and the Senate consulted them only when there was a great need. Sybil used her feminine wiles to enamour the sun god Apollo, the powerful god offered her anything she wanted if she would spend one night with him. She asked for as many years of life as grains of sand she could hold in her hand. Apollo granted her wish, Sybil then refused to sleep with him, he gave her the gift of eternal life but not eternal youth, turning her wish a curse.
