An augur holding alituus, the curved wand often used as a symbol of augury on roman coins
The Augur was a priest, and official in the ancient world, most notably in
Rome. His main role was the practice of augury; interpreting
the will of the gods by studying the flight and habits of birds. This was known as "taking the
auspices." The ceremony and
function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society;
public or private, including war, commerce and religion. The Roman historian Livy
stresses the importance of the augurs: "Who does not know that this city was
founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and peace at
home and abroad was done only after taking the auspices."
