Comment
Bohn in TIB noted that while the print was always considered as Agostino's invention, the design shall be reexamined in light of a drawing attributed to Orazio Samacchini in the Uffizi, inv. no. 20107. On the basis of the inscription, Michael Bury in 2001 still claimed that the composition was Agostino's own invention, deriving from Cornelis Cort's engraving of the same subject, dated 1568 (Hollstein 51), of which Agostino perhaps executed an enlarged copy (Bohlin no. 20).
