The study of the placing of thunderbolts (particularly in the sky) and interpretation of their meaning was a central part of the disciplina etrusca and more specifically the Libri Fulgurales. The late textual sources record a complex typology of meaning based on pigment, trajectory, and other criteria, accompanied by rituals performed by the augurs (or ritual specialists).
