The history of Palmisty originated in India, and later moved on to China, Egypt, and ancient Greece, gathering many different variations. In a book named "Physiognomy & Palmistry", Pythagoras, the ancient Greek mathematician, traces the history of palmistry back to 497 B.C. The right palm is normally used for line-readings.
