Cephalomancy (from κεφαλή, the head, and μαντεία, divination) was a species of divination or ordeal practiced occasionally among the ancient Greeks with an ass's head, which they broiled upon coals, and, after muttering a few prayers, and mentioning the name of the suspected person, if the jaws moved and the teeth chattered, they thought his guilt established.
