The oracle procedure employed in the sacral complex of Zeus Ammon in Siwa oasis apparently did not differ from that of the standard Egyptian barque procession. This procession, taking place during the god's symbolic journey from Aghurmi to the Umm Ubayda temple, during which questions were asked and answers received, was open to all pilgrims. Archaeological finds, as well as literary tradition concerning Alexander the Great's visit, suggest the possibility of private consultation: viz., a 'king's oracle' following a different, unknown ritual.
