Poseidon, god of the sea, was certainly involved in the Oracle of
Delphi alongside Apollo.

Indeed not. The various Oracles of Delphi were a series of real people,
whereas Poseidon & Apollo were Greek gods -- Apollo having a special
place at Delphi. That is, the human Pythia priestess was presiding at
the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi -- giving prophecies from the god Apollo
thru' her lips to the seekers of her visions or hallucinations.

There was a whole complex at Delphi with multiple oracles and priests
and technical support.

Not from Microsoft, I hope.
