[dropcap]A[/dropcap]mniomancy is the divination by means of the caul, or membrane that sometimes envelopes the head of a child at birth.
From an inspection of this caul, wise women predicted the sort of future the baby would have.
If it were red, happy days were in store for the child, or if lead-colored, he would have misfortunes.
