The French stamp showing Coronelli's large
globes was issued in 2008. The stamp features a picture of parts of
the two globes, and a larger picture of the constellation of The Crane
from the celestial atlas. The constellation is identified in four
languages, Italian, Latin, Greek and Arabic. Unfortunately, in the
Greek name, the
initial G (Gamma) is replaced by a
T (Tau) so that the name is
TERANOS i(TERANOS) Istead of
has no meaning in Greek.
Below is an enlarged view of the area of the globe showing the names.
