Caption: Biblical astronomer Jonicus, 15th-century manuscript. Jonicus (lower right) is claimed by sources to be the fourth son of the biblical patriarch Noah. He is depicted here as the first astronomer, studying the stars and holding a book. This manuscript page was produced in Regensburg, Bavaria, in what is now Germany, in the early years of the 15th century (1400-1410). It is a later version of the earlier 'Chronicle of the World' (Weltchronik) by 13th-century Austrian poet Rudolf von Ems. This page was produced in tempera colours, gold, silver paint, and ink on parchment. This is the recto of folio 12 of this manuscript, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California, USA.
