Comment
Made after an engraving of the sculpture available for Agostino Carracci in Bologna, such as that of Giulio Bonasone, Giovanni Battista de' Cavalieri or Antonio Salamanca. Bohn in TIB suggests that Agostino's model was probably Adamo Scultori's engraving of 1566 (Bartsch XV.418.3), see inv. no. 5418.
