The lituus is a crooked wand used as a cult instrument in ancient Roman religion by augurs to mark out a ritual space in the sky (a templum). The passage of birds through this templum indicated divine favor or disfavor for a given undertaking.
The lituus was also used as a symbol of office for the college of the augurs to mark them out as a priestly group.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE! We claim up to 7 days for processing your order. As a rule, this happens much faster – in a day or two. We do this because all items produced by ARX are being consecrated with an authentic religious ceremony before shipment. The ceremony begins with auspicium – the ritual of requesting Iuppiter’s permission for the rites following. This permission may be and may not be granted right away. Sometimes it takes several days to receive it. So sometimes (very rarely) shipment may be delayed a little longer.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE!* If you consider ordering several products at once please CONTACT US FIRST. In this case price for shipping won’t be simply summarizing, it will require separate calculation and most likely will be cheaper for you.
Taxes, fees, and customs charges are sole responsibility of the customer.
