Comment
The print represents the final version of the monument. It was included in Antonio Lafreri's 1573 edition of the Speculum. According to Bianchi 1981, it may not be attributed to Beatrizet, because of the lack of thoroughness and precision in the execution. There is a copy after this print by Ambrogio Brambilla.
