As for the image you provided, what are we to make of the clear depiction of a scythe, a farmers tool, on the side of the 'rocket'?

Naah.

It is the armory car/wagon + soul hauler of Mr. Death. :innocent:

If you notice carefully, there are interchangeable scythe blades neatly packed in front of the scythe.
The scythe is indicated as an advanced model with additional support hands. Death has indeed advanced technologically.
And the Comet looks like a Coffin.
The depiction is a visiting card from Mr. Death. :w00t:

The Latin text to the right of the woodcarving:

In Arabia cometa in modum trabis acutissimae, acuarijs quasi punctis distinctae, cum falce phoenaria uisus est. Eodem anno totam Carinthiã uastarut Turce. Cruciferi cõtra Polonos bellum pararunt. In Vngaria foedus inter Mathiam ac Vladislaum renouatum. In Creta insula (ut a Coccio Sabellico lib.i.

Comet in Arabia in the form of sharp beam as various distinct points, a phoenician scythe to be seen. That same year, Carinthiã to Turkey in total waste. Poles prepared for war against the Crusaders. The treaty between Hungary and Matthias Ladislaus renewed. In the island of Crete, (as well as Coccio Sabellico (???) lib.i.


If anyone has a better translation, please don't hesitate.

And it's not just Latin, it's medieval Latin. They tended to nit words together in a way that would puzzle a Roman of Caesar's time.

Thanks. Well, I was kind of close, lol.

I think you should not use the word "phoenaria" as one word, but as a combination of 2 words.

Shouldn't acuarijs be ac uarijs instead?

If you know what two words are combined, let me know. I tried looking into it that way, and couldn't find any combination I recognized. Also, it strongly appears to be in a class of adjectives that's formed by adding -®i- to an existing denonym or adjective to mean "of the people/area", like Apularia for 'from Apulia'. Given the source, I think it's a mispelling (and might be an error for "Phoenicia" -- but an 'ar' for 'ic' printer's error isn't that common.)

'Acuariis' pl. abl. of 'acuarius' is a similar kind of adjective formed from the verb acuo (to sharpen) through the noun acus (needle), so I don't immediately see a reason to seperate it out inro two words.
