On folio 6v Jupiter is depicted, within concentric, iridescent circles, holding the sceptre in his left hand, arrows in his right and the quiver slung over his shoulder. The two medallions at his feet contain the zodiac signs of Pisces and Sagittarius. The scene below represents the three shops of a fruit seller, a grain seller, and a banker.
