Omen Year (noun)

The omens are taken near Turia by the haruspexes, mostly readers of bosk blood and verr livers. Depending on their determination an ‘Ubar San’ might be chosen, the Ubar of all the Peoples. In the time of Tarl Cabot, the omens had not been favorable for one hundred years. (Book 4: Nomads of Gor, pages 11-12)

ostraka (noun)
token given for admittance to a Gorean performance. These were apparently originally shells or pieces, shards, of pottery, but now were generally small clay disks, with a hole for a string near one edge. These were fired in a kiln, and glazed on one side. The glazing colorations and patterns are difficult to duplicate and serve in their way as an authentication for the disk, the glazing differing for different performances or events. The unglazed back of the disk bears the date of the event or performance and a sign indicating the identity of the original vendor, the agent authorized to sell them to the public. Some of these disks, also, on the back, include a seat location. Most seating, however, in Gorean theaters, except for certain privileged sections, usually reserved for high officials or the extremely wealthy, is on a first-come-first-served basis. These ostraka, on their strings, about the necks of their owners, make attractive pendants. Some are worn even long after the performance or event in question, perhaps to let people know that one was fortunate enough to have been the witness of a particular event or performance, or perhaps merely because of their intrinsic aesthetic value. Some people keep them as souvenirs. Others collect them, and buy and sell them, and trade them. If the event or performance is an important one, and the ostraka are limited, their number being governed by the seating capacity of the structure or area in question, it is unlikely that they will be publicly displayed until after the event or performance. Needless to say some profiteering occasionally takes place in connection with the ostraka, a fellow buying a few for a given price and then trying to sell them for higher prices later outside, say, the stadium or theater.
oval, slave (noun)
a method of chain a slave girl consisting of a hinged iron loop which locks around her waist with two sliding wrist- rings and a welded ring in the middle of the back. (Book 11: Slave Girl of Gor, page 146)
oysters (noun)
from the delta of the Vosk. (Book 7: Captive of Gor, page 301)
