Hieroglyphics of Horapollo, tr. Alexander Turner Cory, , at sacred-texts.com
When they would symbolise a man skilled in celestial matters, they depict A CRANE FLYING; 2 for she always flies very high, to inspect the clouds lest they send forth a storm, that she may remain in quiet. 3
145:3 Treb. hæc enim ita alte advolat, ut nubes videat et tangat, "for it flies so high that it inspects and touches the clouds."
