He wrote that the constellation represented the camel on which Rebecca rode into Canaan for her marriage to Isaac, as in the book of Genesis.
Bartsh did not know that camelopardalis is actually the latin name for the giraffe.
The Greeks thought that the giraffe was a mixed animal with the body of a camel but the spots of a leopard.
Earlier the Greeks thought that this area of the sky was empty until it was discovered by astronomers.
This constellation is relatively new and doesn't have much Greek mythology or folk lore to go with it. Barlas's Constellation Presentation
