Parapsychology - Who Is Abaris?

 




A famous magician and Scythian high priest of Apollo.

He flatteringly sung Apollo's praises, and the god granted him a golden arrow with which he could fly through the air like a bird.

As a result, he was dubbed the Aerobate by the Greeks.




Pythagoras, his student, took the arrow from him and used it to do many amazing feats.

Abaris could predict the future, calm storms, cure sickness, and go days without eating or drinking.

He sculpted a figure of Minerva from Pelops' bones, which he sold to the Trojans as a heavenly talisman.

This was the fabled Palladium, which guarded and made impenetrable the town in which it resided.
