A detailed and heavily annotated examination of the presentation and treatment of Roman augural matters in Greek texts, notably those derived from the works of Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Plutarch, Appian and Cassius Dio, in order to uncover a fresh Greek perspective on a familiar topic. Vaahtera contrasts Roman and Greek sources before considering the terminology that Greek authors developed to describe the officials and rituals.

The study finally considers the role of the auspices in public life and how Greek writers viewed the rituals themselves.
