Dutch theologian Petrus Plancius introduced the image of constellation Gallus on a globe in 1612 without any written documentation.  Twelve years later Geman astronomer Jacob Bartsch described Gallus as the rooster that crowed after Peter had denied Jesus three times.  Whether that was Plancius' true intention in creating the constellation we'll never know.
