Woodcut illustration (probably intended to represent Georg Zingel, the author Jacob Locher's nemesis) of a snake-haired figure (Medusa?) riding a horse shod with pattens. The figure carries a whip of snakes in its right hand and holds the horse's tail (which ends in a dragon's head) in its left; from behind its head project a boar's head and a dog's head. Used by Johann Grüninger of Strasbourg.

Established heading: Grüninger, Johann, -1532?
