Comment
Reproduces the relief of the antique sarcophagus with the story of Achilles visible in the period on the Campidolgio, transferred later in the Casino di Villa Doria Pamphili, Rome. The print was first published by Beatrizet himself, and was later part of Antonio Lafréry's 1573 edition of the Speculum. The two plates are conserved today in the Calcografia, Rome, inv. no. 1363.
