[1] Artemidorus 2.10, with a slight oversimplification of the rationale presented for this dream interpretation: "If fire seems to flare up quickly when it is lit, or in a hearth or an oven, it is good, and it means childbirth. For a hearth and an oven are like a woman in that they take in things that are useful for life. And the fire within them is divined as the woman being pregnant; for the woman then becomes hotter."
[2] Grammatically, 'they' are the 'things', not the women.
