Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX and all related archives are to be stored within the Site-127 Critical Information Storage Unit. The current text of SCP-XXXX is to be recorded every 24 hours and submitted to Foundation AI OU-SEERPROOF for analysis. Individuals with Level-3 Clearance and access to Project SNOWBELL-44 may request access to the full body of information associated with SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an obsidian disc measuring approximately 1.5 meters in diameter and three centimeters in thickness. One face of the disc has been smoothed to a single plane. The other face posses 324 distinct facets of a variety of sizes and angles, all of which are engraved with symbols of unknown origin.

White text appears on the smooth surface of SCP-XXXX at irregular intervals. This text consists of several sentences of Latin that are constructed to appear prophetic in nature, consisting largely of allegorical statements and vague comments with multiple possible interpretations. These statements remain visible on the surface of SCP-XXXX until they are replaced by subsequent bodies of text. The origin of these statements, as well as the means by which they are transferred and displayed, remains unknown.

SCP-XXXX was discovered in 2004 during a regular sweep of large estate sales in the northern United States. It was sold as part of a collection including a variety of non-anomalous divination paraphernalia including devices such as haruspices, crystal balls, kau cim sticks, as well as a large number of texts on the subject. Documents in the possession of the deceased owner indicate that SCP-XXXX had been purchased from an auction sponsored by Marshall, Carter, and Dark Ltd., and that it had been initially obtained from an unmarked grave outside of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in southern France.
