Farnese Atlas

Pisces sign along with all the other zodiac signs appears clearly on the Farnese Atlas, which is kept at the Museo Archaeologico Nazionale in Naples, Italy. Actually, it is one of 41 ancient Greek constellations, which are shown in relief. We can’t see the Pisces from this angle but one of the two fishes has a ribbon that goes from its tail to the head of Cetus constellation.
