Comment
Repeats the figure of Mars in the stucco realized in 1527-30 by Francesco Primaticcio and Giovanni Battista Scultori in a lunette of Sala degli Stucchi, Palazzo del Te, Mantua, after Giulio Romano's design. The plate, once in the possession of de' Rossi and today in the Calcografia, Rome, bears Victory on its recto (Bartsch XV.428.105, see inv. no. 5322).
