Example text

Fearing therefore for himself, lest his brother might slay him and so be king, he sent to Persia Prexaspes, the trustiest of his Persians, to kill Smerdis.  The rebellion allows him to understand the difference between Smerdis his brother and Smerdis Mago; the mortal wound shows him the difference between Agbatana in Media and Agbatana in Syria. Errors in interpretation can also be caused by riddles, which are not necessarily' language based and can take various forms.  Because of this (mistaken) belief, and hoping to avoid the events predicted by the oracle, he leaves Corinth and goes to Thebes, where he unwittingly fulfills the very, destiny which was predicted for him.

He flashed lightning on our right, showing signs of favour.  Thus the lightning which comes from the right side of the sky is seen to mean "successful outcome of the Greek expedition against Troy''. In order to identify the final meaning of a sign, all divinatory systems are based on a more or less stable balance between the formal structures of the code (which allows for a thorough codification of the unusual or momentous event) and the multiplicity of the concrete situations to which the event­sign can refer in specific contexts.

Bide not still in thy place for the host that cometh from landward, Cometh with horsemen and foot; but rather withdraw at his coming, Turning thy back to the foe; thou yet shalt meet him in battle.  'tis writ that children of women Thou shalt destroy one day, in the season of seed­time or harvest.  The messengers are not satisfied with the first response and in their turn challenge the god, threatening not to leave the sanctuary until they succeed in persuading the god to attenuate his hostile attitude to the city.
