They appear in a famous early Italian version of Cassiodorus' Institutions, which is one of a number of showing a vivarium: a pool for raising living , here linking directly to the river.

    If anyone is trying to access stuff at the British Library but can't due to the , National Library of Scotland is worth a try.
    For example, it has some historical maps of the entire UK.
