Comment
According to Cirillo Archer in TIB, this is one of Giulio Bonasone's prints for which he used a model that he believed to be by or after Raphael. In this case perhaps only part of the composition had such a source and the engraver expanded the original image. The Neptune group in the left background is based upon the central figure in Raimondi's Quos Ego (Bartsch XIV.264.352).
