Apotelesmata

Apotelesmata (ἀποτελέσματα) were little figures and images of wax made by magical art among the ancients to receive the influence of the stars, and used as helps in divination. Hence judicial astrology was sometimes called the apotelesmatical art. All divination of this kind was looked upon by the early Christians as idolatry, and for this practice Eusebius Emissenus was condemned as engaging in an art unworthy the character of a Christian bishop.
