About the name Necromantia
The name of Necromantia derives from two ancient Greek words, νεκρός (dead) and μαντεία (divination).
The word νεκρομαντεία was used in the Hellenistic period, following the previous word νέκυια. Both of them meant the magical practice that had been known since ancient times as divination of the dead.
