What is “Auto” on older, manual focus lenses?

Many times when I search ebay for deals on good, used glass I refine my search by choosing ”autofocus” and “auto and manual focus” type lenses - yet my results remain chock full of strictly manual focus lenses that have the word Auto on them. What is automatic in this instance?

btw - the other day I scored a very clean 50mm f/1.7 AF lens with both caps and a case for a mere $19! What’s your greatest bargain bin lucky lens find?

thanks!
