The Treisar is the Hebrew name for the Book of the Twelve Minor Prophets. Jonah was a popular artistic figure for the early Roman Christians, who saw themselves as emerging from the catacombs in order to preach to the city, much like Jonah emerged from the whale to preach to Nineveh, which can be seen here, dated to the 300's - 400's.
