Alectorian Stone

Alectorian Stone, in Greek mythology, was a rocky substance which the ancients believed was found in the stomach or liver of cocks (hence its name, from ἀλέκτωρ). This stone was said to possess powers producing happiness and good luck. It was also said to produce love, to prevent danger, to give fluency of speech, and to be a disburser of riches. It was believed that Pericles, Demosthenes, and other renowned Greciane were in possession of such a stone.
