Well, here's something fun...an illustrated papyrus which I didn't know existed. British Library Papyrus 3053 shows an bear in an arena lunging at the legs of a man, who probably just vaulted over the back of the bear.

Random drawing from manuscript.
Obviously someone used a blank page to practice, but I like this beast.
Manuscript is a Bible at St Gall. (St. Gallen, Stiftsbibliothek / Cod. Sang. 7 ) from the 9th century.
