References to the use of a Muslim "slate" (wala) as a divining tray stem from Ellis' misinterpretation of Burton's account (1893: I, 220-222), which at no point states it was so employed. What Burton describes is one of the carved tablets or the calendars employed in Dahomey as shown by Maupoil (1943: 209-218); although their origin is ascribed to If~. they have not been reported for the Yoruba. Statements that sixteen figures are permanently marked on the divining tray also derive from Burton's description of these Dahomean calendars.
Previous Studies 23 Meanwhile, a number of studies were being made in Dahomey and Togo. Following Burton (1864) there were the works of Skertchly (1874), Grandin (1895), Spieth (1911) for the Ewe, Le Herisse (1911), Monteil (1931), Quenum (1935), Gorer (1935), Bertho (1936), Herskovits (1938), Trautman (1940), the monumental work by Maupoil (1943), Alapini (1950), Garnier and Fralon (1951) for the Ewe, and a collection of Fa myths in Herskovits and Herskovits (1958). There were errors and repetitions in these works also, but they include a number of important, independent studies.
Shaking these through his partly opened fingers, so that they fell upon the ground within the circle of light thrown by a hurricane lamp, Fatosin stooped and studied the carved markings upon the various ivory 'nuts'. The side of his divining bowl had been dusted with white powder from the sacred tree used for the purpose, and the Babalawo now made a mark upon the dust with his finger. Again the ivory nuts were shaken out, and the marks noted, with a second mark placed upon the divining bowl. Eight times in all, to fulfil the prescribed number, Fatosin cast his ivory nuts.
