A deadly rain of stones. Woodcut with early handcolouring from Conrad Lycosthenes' (Chronicle of Prodigies and Omens) - "Prodigiorum ac Ostentorum Chronicon" Published Hendricus Petri, Basel, 1557. This image appears to show a shower of meteorites - Lycosthenes notes they are stones and not hail. There are no modern reports of human casualties due to meteorites. Lycosthenes book recites accounts of ancient and medieval natural disasters, occurrences, monstrosities, deformities, and apparitions.
