Pisces constellation, from Leiden Aratea (ca. 816)

Leiden Aratea is an illuminated copy of latin version of Phaenomena by Greek didactic poet Aratus, translated and commented by Germanicus. The codex was created in France and dates to around 816. It contains 39 beautiful miniatures of constellations based on examples from classical antiquity, although the stars are not placed correctly in respect to their actual positions in the sky. Leiden Aratea served as a source for Hugo Grotius’ edition of Phaenomena, Syntagma Arateorum, which further inspired the illustrations in Johann Bayer’s Uranometria.
