"Dreams were divided into two classes; the first class was believed to be influenced only by the present(or the past), and was unimportant in respect of the future; it included the enuknia (insomnia), which directly reproduce a given idea or it's opposite; e.g., hunger or it's satiation; and the phantasmata, which eloborate the given idea phantastically, e.g. the nightmare, ephialtes. The second class of dreams, on the other hand, was determinative of the future. To this belonged:
1. Direct prophecies received in the dream (chrematismos, oraculum);
2. the foretelling of a future event (orama, visio);
3. The symbolic dream, which requires interpretation (oneiros, somnium)"
