śakuni ‘bird,’ is used practically like śakuna, but with a much clearer reference to divination. It was smaller than the Syena or Suparṇa,1 gave signs,2 and foretold ill-luck.3 When it is mentioned4 in the list of sacrificial victims at the Aśva­medha (‘ horse sacrifice ’), a special species must be meant: later the falcon is so called, but the ‘ raven ’ may be intended ; the commentator on the Taittirīya Samhitā thinks that it is the ‘crow.’ It is mentioned several times elsewhere.[1]
