||f61v Text: the eagle.
Illustration: Two panels of eagles fishing and plunging into
the renjuvenating spring. The lower section of the illustration is damaged.
This is a Physiologus subject. The reference to catching fish
means that the bird must be a sea eagle or osprey. The white tailed
eagle is found in the Mediterranean. Although this is an original Physiologus
subject, the illustrations of this bird are among the most varied, indicating
the lack of an accepted common source.
