Comment
Bellori claimed it was Agostino's own design, and later writers suggested it was Girolamo Muziano's invention engraved by Cornelis Cort, but no work by him corresponds to this print. Agostino's engraving demonstrates Federico Barocci's influence in the 1580s, especially his etching of the same subject, Bartsch XVII.3.3, see inv. no. 5947. A drawing in the Louvre, inv. no. 7437, had been ascribed to Annibale but reattributed to Agostino by Bohn in TIB, was probably transitional between Barocci's and Agostino's print.
