"Temet Nosce" was a greek phrase translated as "Know Thyself." This phrase was on a placard over the Oracle's kitchen door. The Cypherite leader, Cryptos, sought guidance from the Oracle during this time of uncertainty and received from her a prophesy of widespread death and destruction, to be triggered by a choice the Cypherites had already made. She reminded Cryptos of the placard over her kitchen door:
- Temet noscoe was also the name of a group of oepratives.
- These were words tranlsated by Gnothi Seauton that were inscribed upon the temple of Delphi- home of the oracle of Delphi, on whom the Oracle herself was based on)
