Dutch term or phrase: ingewandschouwer
Grimmig en hartstochtelijk was het levenseinde van Siculus die Gracchus als ingewandschouwer en vriend van dienst was geweest. Toen hij om die reden naar de geveangenis werd overgebracht, beukte hij zijn hoofd tegen de post van de Poort der Schande en gaf de geest.

Explanation:
For the practice of reading entrails, see Extispicy.


Extispicy (from Latin extispicium) is the practice of using anomalies in animal entrails to predict or divine future events.[1] Organs inspected can include the liver, intestines, lungs, or other major organs. The animal used for extispicy must often be ritually pure and slaughtered in a special ceremony.

Both forward-starting inflation measures started collapsing this past spring. Is it any accident this is when the present bond rally started to take off? If you start to price the risk of inflation out of long-term bonds, the yields on those bonds fall; the question of whether the market is any better in its assessment than a Roman entrails-reader or some blue-painted Druid priestess is irrelevant.
