An engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi showing a young man carrying a drunk bacchant. According to Bartsch, this print is signed by the printmaker with his monogram, which is not visible on this impression, as the lower left margin is partially erased. Stamped with an unidentified collector's mark. Trimmed within the platemark.

This print was catalogued by Bartsch as after a drawing either by Raphael or Giulio Romano. As the British Museum (see Bibliographic References) noted, this could have possibly been related to an unexecuted Bacchanal painting commissioned from Raphael in 1519 by Alfonso I D' Este, likely inspired by Giulio Romano.
