Not understanding the Latin text properly and not being sufficiently familiar with mythology, Georgius Zothori Zapari Fenduli--who illustrated the original abridgement of Abu [Ma.sup.c]sar's Introductorium maius in astronomiam--interpreted the term harpe as the musical instrument rather than the scimitar.
