Eromancy

Eromancy is one of six kinds of divination by means of air and water practiced by the Persians.

They enveloped their heads in a napkin and exposed to the air a vase filled with water, over which they muttered in a low voice the objects of their desire.

If the surface of the air showed bubbles, it was regarded as a positive prognostication.
