The illustration from the Codex Nuttall given just above,
from the great marriage scene on p.19,
is from one of the naming portions,

the "Hill of the Wasp" as it is usually called.
The wings are those identified with the wasp,
and they occur also in the symbols for Venus, as "Wasp Star".

The sharply pointed abdomen holds the stinger.

The other major hill in that marriage scene is
"Hill of Flints".
