Artemidorus

(c. 101 - c. 200)

Artemidorus traveled in Greece, Italy, and Asia Minor to compile his treatise on soothsaying, astrology, and the decoding of dreams titled Oneirocritica, or Interpretation of Dreams. He reportedly also wrote two now-lost works on reading palms and interpreting bird omens. In his book of the same name, Sigmund Freud did not assign the same portentous quality to dreams; rather he believed that “the interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.”
