A photograph of a drawing catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence. This drawing is close in composition to the fresco of Abraham and Melchizedek painted by the workshop of Raphael (c.1517-19) in the vault of the fourth bay of the Raphael Loggia in the Vatican. Ruland described the drawing as a 'pen and bister washed sketch'; also, it appears to be marked 'P2606'.
