A facsimile of a drawing currently in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no.3884 v) thought to be a copy of a compositional study by Raphael (now lost), preparatory for the lower left-hand group in the Disputa (The Disputation of the Holy Sacrament) painted in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican between 1508 and 1511.

The facsimile, which according to Ruland (1876) was made by Count Caylus, ascribes the drawing to Raphael. A photograph of the drawing can be found at RCIN 852437.
