Product Description

The Greek I Ching

In ancient Greece methods of fortune telling the future were widespread, whether they were official oracles of the gods or simple dice games to divine one’s luck. One of the most popular and accessible ways of determining one’s fate and fortune was through the ritual of casting animal bones, similar to the casting of coins or yarrow stalks with the Chinese I Ching.

Kostas Dervenis explains how to interpret the casting of the oracle bones – either traditional sheep ankle bones of coins – to answer your questions on love, health, wealth, and the future. Using the original stanzas discovered in ancient Greek temples in Greece and Turkey, the author reconstructs the complex matrix of interpretation for each possible casting of the bones.

KOSTAS DERVENIS is a materials engineer and a martial arts instructor in jujutsu and pammachon. He is the coauthor of The Martial Arts of Ancient Greece and the author, under the pen name of Kosta Danaos, of Nei Kung and The Magus of Java. He lives in Athens, Greece.
