Caption: Pisces constellation. Optical image of Pisces, the Fishes, the twelfth of the twelve signs of the Zodiac. It is a large but inconspicuous constellation, which appears as a fish or two fishes in several ancient cultures. In Greco-Roman mythology, the two fish represent Venus and her son Cupid. Plunging into the Euphrates when the monster Typhon attacked them, they became the fishes whose images were raised into the sky.
