Prenestine Lots, The

The Prenestine Lots, or Sories Prenestinae, is a method of divination by lots, which was the vogue in Italy. The letters of the alphabet were placed in an urn that was shaken, and then the letters were thrown out on the floor; the words thus formed were received as omens. The custom survived in the East. A.G.H.
