We find another explanation in Próklos:

"For he (ed. the Demiurgus) divides the soul into parts, harmonizes the divided parts, and renders them concordant with each other. But in effecting these things, he energizes at one and the same time Dionysiacally [i.e. Bacchically] and Apolloniacally. For to divide, and produce wholes into parts, and to preside over the distribution of forms, is Dionysiacal; but to perfect all things harmonically, is Apolloniacal. As the Demiurgus, therefore, comprehends in himself the cause of both these Gods, he both divides and harmonizes the soul. For the hebdomad (ed. seven) is a number common to both these divinities, since theologists (Orphic) also say that Bacchus was divided into seven parts:

Into seven parts the Titans cut the boy.

Ant they refer the heptad (ed. group of seven) to Apollo, as containing all symphonies. For the duple diapason (ed. a rich outpouring of harmonious song) first subsists in the monad (ed. one), duad (ed. two), and tetrad (ed. four), of which numbers the hebdomad (ed. seven) consists. Hence they call the God Hebdomagetes, or born on the seventh day, and assert that this day is sacred to him." (

- Λοξίας epith. of Apollo, Hdt., Trag.;—either from λοξός, the ambiguous, or from λέγω, λόγος, the speaker. (Middle Liddell) 
A famous example of an ambiguous oracle: when Krísos (Croesus; Gr. Κροῖσος), the king of Lydía (Lydia; Gr. Λυδία) from 560 to 546 BC, consulted the Oracle of Dælphí (Delphi; Gr. Δελφοί), the Oracle responded, "If you go to war, a great empire will be destroyed." Krísos then went to war and destroyed his own empire. (Ἡρόδοτος Ἱστορίαι, Book I. 50-91) If Krísos was not so proud, perhaps he would have correctly interpreted the oracle. While ambiguous to the vicious, the oracle is always exactly true, because Apóllohn is the Orthós Lógos (Gr. Ὀρθός Λόγος), the True Word, for Apóllohn cannot lie.

PLEASE NOTE: Throughout the pages of this website, you will find fascinating stories about our Gods. These narratives are known as mythology, the traditional stories of the Gods and Heroes. While these tales are great mystical vehicles containing transcendent truth, they are symbolic and should not be taken literally. A literal reading will frequently yield an erroneous result. The meaning of the myths is concealed in code. To understand them requires a key. For instance, when a God kills someone, this usually means a transformation of the soul to a higher level. Similarly, sexual union with a God is a transformation.
