An anonymous engraving depicting a statue of Jupiter in an aedicule of the first Temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill, Rome. Bartsch catalogued this engraving as by Agostino Veneziano after Raphael. This print is lettered with the title. Trimmed within the platemark.  Annotated on the verso. 

The Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus, also known as the Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus, was the most important temple in Ancient Rome and used to stand on the Capitoline Hill. The first building was the oldest large temple in Rome and according to tradition, it was dedicated in 509 BC under the King Tarquin the Elder, but in 83 BC it was destroyed by fire, and a replacement completed in 69 BC. Another two temples were built during the Flavian dynasty and the fourth survived until the fall of the empire.
