A photograph of a drawing depicting a male torso now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (inv. no. WA1846.261 verso). This drawing is on the verso of a sheet depicting a study for two figures of Aphrodite (see RCIN 854559 for a photograph of the recto).

Parker (see Bibliographic References) notes that the torso as well as another study in the Ashmolean Museum (inv. no. WA1846.257; a photograph of which is at RCIN 854567) are inspired by the version in the Boboli Gardens of the Aristogeiton from the group of Tyrant-slayers by Krtos and Nesiotes.
