Re: VMs: The strange jug images

I found some interesting text on the page(folio) with the drawings of two
objects that closely resemble arab lamps. Notice how at the start of the
description, there are 2 very similar words. Those words look A LOT like
"figura" which in Spanish, Russian, or many other languages means the word
"figure" or "item

Yes it does say 'figura'. The left hand caption says 'figura capitelli secundum
expositores catholicos', 'picture of the knob according to the Catholic
interpreters' and the right hand caption says 'figura capitelli secundum Rabbi
Salomonem', 'picture of the knob according to Rabbi Solomon'. It refers to
some object described in the Bible. I have come across this before but I can't
remember where.
