Diana-pillars and their cousins Agyieús-pillars are comparable to our modern May-poles, and basically these are universe-columns, just as well as the Irminsüls.
May-poles are known to symbolize fertility in combining the male and female components1. The universe-columns resting in the flat earth-plate may therefore also be considered as male respectively female elements.

The likeness of the Delphic Agyieús, thus reconstituted, to the Germanic Irminsul is sufficiently striking. It becomes even more so, when we note that the Irminsul described by Widukind was erected at the gateway of the town with a pillar on either side of it.

The Delphic omphalos often is associated with 2 eagles, which would refer to Zeus. If this is true, then the Apollo sanctuary had belonged to Zeus and the letter E may have been assigned to Zeus as well. This is another fundamental approach.
On the block are engraved four archaic letters, referable to the seventh century B.C., of which the last three give us in the genitive case the name of the earth-goddess Ga (or "Gas", respectively "Gaz") and the first appears to be the mystic symbol E.

If this is true, then the Apollo sanctuary had belonged to Zeus and the letter E may have been assigned to Zeus as well. This is another fundamental approach.
The E may have been the central letter for Zyeus (Zeus), which symbolizes the very link between:

-- the leading (male?) letter y (yod) and
-- the trailing (female?) letter u.

By the ways: it also may be comparable to the letter H in YHV, or the letter A in IAΩ
