Engastrimyth is rarely seen anymore and it refers to the soothsaying phenomenon of speaking without appearing to speak. It has been associated with prophetesses; such as, the famous Delphic Oracle, or with seers who acted as conveyors for the voice of someone beyond the grave; such as, the Biblical story of the Witch of Endor.
Hypochondriasis was thought by the ancients to be caused by the disturbed function of the spleen and other organs in the upper abdomen.
