Comment
The source for this subject might have been an engraving by Sebastiano Folcaro after a fresco from the old portico of the Basilica di San Pietro, published by Antonio Bosio in 1632 in 'Roma sotteranea' (p. 183). Castiglione repeated the composition in a monotype with some variations (Bellini in TIB 1985, 4602.121 - Mon. 5).
