Comment
The series, of which Bartsch knew only five plates, was inspired by the busts conserved today in the Museo Torlonia. Bonasone perhaps executed the prints on the basis of drawings made during his Roman stay. According to Cirillo Archer in TIB, the busts of Jupiter and Juno were executed first, with less etching, without verses and in slightly larger format than the others.
