One of six types of divinations practiced by the Persians by air and water. They wrapped their heads in a napkin, exposed to the air a vase full of water, over which in a low voice they uttered the objects of their desires. If bubbles appeared on the surface of the water, it was a happy prognostication. (see Eromanty) A.G.H.
