Comment
According to Cirillo Archer in TIB the print may have been created as a pendant of the engraving by Giovanni Antonio da Brescia (TIB 2081.056) but it does not seem to be made by that engraver and is somewhat smaller. It reproduces two of the Sibyls in the Chigi Chapel of Santa Maria della Pace, Rome, painted by Raphael c. 1511-14.
