- n. Divination by means of cheese.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Special thanks to EscapePod. org for publishing a great series of superhero stories (of course thanks to Jeffrey R. Derego for writing them!) and providing me the inspiration to find a way to work tyromancy and sycomancy into a play.

In a previous post I introduced you to the idea of divination by cheese (tyromancy) - and now I bring to you the alternative idea of aleuromancy (or alphitomancy) - or divination by bread (or a bread-like material).
