Many of the most common (or at least commonly written about) methods of divination used by folks in ancient Greece really aren't practical or common today. This is an area we need to research and see what can be used directly. However, I also think that most modern methods of divination could be used by people already familiar with them, perhaps with some tinkering to make them fit a Hellenic wrldview a bit better.

I've always been fond of the method of bird watching that's mentioned in Sophocles' Antigone.

I also suck at most methods of divination.
