An anonymous engraving depicting a statue of Cupid in an aedicule that Ruland (1876) catalogued as in the Temple of Cupid. Bartsch catalogued this engraving as by Agostino Veneziano after Raphael. Trimmed within the platemark.

No temples of Cupid are known in ancient Rome, unless Ruland (1876) was referring to the Temple of Venus and Cupid which used to be part of the Palazzo Sessorio, a residence of the Roman Emperors since Septimius Severus' time.
