Comment
For the series, see under inv. no. 16208. The print reproduces a painting by Pietro da Cortona now in the Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice (inv. no. 754). In a later edition of the series, it replaced Andrea Zucchi's engraving after the painting by Pomponio Amalteo representing the Justice of Trajan; see Bozza 2012, no. 58.
