An engraving by Adamo Ghisi depicting three men sacrificing a pig. Trimmed within the platemark.

This print 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).
