A'ugur. n.s. [augur, Lat.] One who pretends to predict by omens, particularly by the flight of birds.
What say the augurs? ———
— They would not have you stir forth to-day:
Plucking the entrails of an offering forth,
They could not find a heart within the beast. Shak. J. Cæs.
Calchas, the sacred seer, who had in view
Things present and the past, and things to come foreknew:
Supreme of augurs. Dryden's Fables.
As I and mine consult thy augur,
Grant the glad omen; let thy fav'rite rise
Propitious, ever soaring from the right. Prior.
