36 years after the success of Cimon pronouncement, Aristophanes in the comedy ”The Birds" claims that Siwa's Oracle is of equal importance of those of Dodona and Delphi.

"The Birds" By Aristophanes : Written 414 B.C.E

"We are your Ammon, Delphi, Dodona, your Phoebus Apollo. Before undertaking anything, whether a business transaction, a marriage, or the purchase of food, you consult the birds by reading the omens, and you give this name of omen to all signs that tell of the future"
