Today I was emailed the picture below by Tomaz Stanovnik. It’s from a 15th century German manuscript. Tomaz noted the similarity with the opening “salutation” of Kushanku / Kanku-Dai. Yet another example that Donn Draeger was write when he paraphrased the bible to say, “There is nothing new under the sun … except the very old”.
