Hi Everyone! A friend in work is searching for a word he is 99.9% sure exists, and yet both of us are unable to find it using the internet. So, if any of you know if there is a particular word for things falling out of the sky (not blue ice, not meteorites etc.) would you please let me know because we are both slowly going crazy from searching. An example of this would be the Ancient Greek Playwright Aeschylus who supposedly died when an Eagle dropped a Tortoise on his head (á la Small Gods ). My colleague thinks that the word may be slightly derived from his name...type thing.
