Die Rückseite des im frühen ersten Jahrhundert n. Chr. in Alexandria entstandenen Artemidor-Papyrus zeigt forty-one Zeichnungen von einer Hand, davon 38 Tierdarstellungen (da oft zwei Arten umfassend, insgesamt forty four Tiere), von denen die meisten mit griechischen Tiernamen versehen sind. Nach einer Überschrift auf dem Papyrus enthält er Vierfüßer des Landes, Vögel, Fische und Wale. Die Darstellung steht in einer hellenistischen culture von Tierbildern, beginnend mit Aristoteles, ausgebaut durch die Vorläufer des Nil-Mosaiks von Praeneste (Palestrina), fortgesetzt einerseits in der hellenistisch-römischen Kunst (Wandgemälde, Mosaiken), andererseits in wissenschaftlichen byzantinischen Codices. Das Verso des Papyrus wurde offensichtlich als Musterbuch benutzt.
