Ancient Roman religion. The Sibylline Books or Libri Sibyllini were a collection of oracular utterances, set out in Greek hexameters , purchased from a sibyl by the last king of Rome , Tarquinius Superbus , and consulted at momentous crises through the history of the Republic and the Empire. Only fragments have survived, the rest being lost or deliberately destroyed. The Sibylline Books should not be confused with the so-called Sibylline Oracles , twelve books of prophesies thought to be of Judaeo-Christian origin. According to the Roman tradition, the oldest collection of Sibylline books appears to have been made about the time of Solon and Cyrus at Gergis on Mount Ida in the Troad ; it was attributed to the Hellespontine Sibyl and was preserved in the temple of Apollo at Gergis. From Gergis the collection passed to Erythrae , where it became famous as the oracles of the Erythraean Sibyl.
