Caption: Asclepius and Circe. 15th-century manuscript page with text in Middle French and an artwork of the Ancient Greek physician (and god of medicine) Asclepius and the minor Ancient Greek goddess of magic Circe. Asclepius is holding up a flask and making a diagnosis, while Circe is spearing frogs in a stream below. Artwork from the 'L'Epitre d'Othea' section of 'The Book of the Queen', a collection of the works of Italian-French medieval author Christine de Pizan (1364-c.1430), assembled and produced in Paris in around 1410-1414. This artwork is attributed to the workshop of the Master of the Cite des Dames.
