Derives from the Roman relief called 'The Boxers', originating from Traian's Forum, preserved today in Museo Gregoriano Profano, Vatican, inv. nos. 9502 and 9503. The design had been ascribed to Raphael or Marco Dente himself, but the print's direct source was most probably a lost drawing by Giulio Romano. Giulio adapted the antique model for the two gladiators in his fresco depicting The Parting of the Hooves of Taurus, 1527, Sala dei Venti, Palazzo del Te, Mantua. According to Massari in Rome 1985, this is a late work by the engraver, executed around the same time as his Laocoon (Bartsch XIV.268.353). In both these prints Dente placed the sculptures in a setting probably of his own invention - in this case, in front of a detail of the Colosseum. It is documented that the plate was later in the possession of Carlo Losi, therefore Massari in Rome 1993 listed a hypothetical third state with his publisher's address.
