To dream of being hanged prognosticates success in proportion to the gibbet; if the dreamer be ill he will find joy and contentment; the dream of condemning another to be hanged signifies anger with the person, followed by a restoration of confidence which will be abused. The Persians and Egyptians interpret the dream of hanging as auguring riches, honor and respect. To dream of being delivered from being hanged forecasts downfall in estate and dignity (Artemidorus).
