An outline etching depicting three men sacrificing a pig. This print is lettered with "379" at the upper right corner, the title in French, German and English at the bottom of the print and the identification of Raphael as the painter. Signed by the printmaker. This print was published as plate 379 in C.P. Landon, 'Vie et Œuvre complète de Raphaël Sanzio', 1803. Annotated on the verso. Trimmed within the platemark.

For a similar print by Adamo Ghisi, which could have been the source for this print, see RCIN 854619. The print by Ghisi was catalogued by Bartsch as after a drawing by Giulio Romano. This drawing (now lost) was related to an ancient sculpture in the National Archaeological Museum, Naples, although most probably derived from a gem of the same subject (see Bibliographic References).
