Buraicus

Buraicus (Bouraikos), a surname of Heracles, derived from the Achaean town of Bura, near which he had a statue on the river Buraicus, and an oracle in a cave. Persons who consulted this oracle first said prayers before the statue, and then took four dice from a heap which was always kept ready, and threw them upon a table. These dice were marked with certain characters, the meaning of which was explained with the help of a painting which hung in the cave. (Paus. vii. 25.6.)
