I picked this up while helping to set up Bridgman, Michigan's first library. Roth, the librarian, having me pegged as a scholarly sort, had me go through their bags and boxes donations in order to recommend retention or removal. One of the donors from this rural community was apparently a fan of ancient history and classics. There were many titles in these areas of which this was one.

Python is a very broad survey of the Delphic myth, drawing in parallels from around the world and from many periods after discussing the Greek sources of the story. As such it is much like those kinds of archetypal analyses and expositions Jungians are wont to make.
Personally, I found it rather heavy going. This book is still the bible on the topic. Fontenrose did an excellent job of comparing the divergent myths and putting them in their historical context.

Python begins as the study of the combat of Apollo and the dragon Python—the origin myth of Apollo's shrine at Delphi—and ends up as a massive survey of the Eurasian combat myth. In The Delphic Oracle he catalogues the oracular responses from Delphi and Didyma, relates the supposed dates of the responses to the lifetimes of the writers who first attest them, and shows that most reported oracles are fabrications.
He considered these the first two books of a trilogy, but he died before he could write the third, on the cults of Delphi. A socialist, Fontenrose had a keen interest in history and politics, especially in events that affected the working classes, ancient and modern. He was also instrumental in starting a local of the American Federation of Teachers at Berkeley.
His publications outside of classics include two studies of the California novelist John Steinbeck. Database of Classical Scholars.
