Argentine, which means "silver", is a common descriptive term for those lesser magicians who practised during the decline of English magic - men of much inferior power to the great Aureate or "Golden Age" magicians who flourished during the reign of John Uskglass. Some Argentine magicians, despite their pretensions, were in fact unable to perform any magic at all (see Gregory Absalom).
