A four-legged, winged, and fire breathing draconem (ca. 1255~1265 CE)

Corner-ul ur-corner

This is an illustration from a bestiary released sometime in the 11th Century, showing a 'draconem' with legs, wings, and breathing fire; all stuff that is not described by the text! This is one of the earliest images of what would later be recognized as one of the new class of monsters called 'dragons.'

This copy of the image comes from the Medieval Bestiary website [Link Here].
