Five signs of a deva’s imminent death:

1. His garlands wither

2. His clothes get soiled

3. Sweat comes out of his armpits

4. A dullness descends on his body

5. He no longer delights in his own deva-seat

(from Sumangala Vilasini, abbrev. DA.ii.427f; Atthasālinī, abbrev. DhSA, 33; DA is Buddhaghosa's commentary on the Digha Nikaya and DhSA is Buddhaghosa's commentary on the Dhammasangani, the first book of the Abhidhamma)
