A print corresponding closely with a composition designed by Raphael and painted in the vault of the Stanza di Eliodoro in the Vatican. This print appears to be a copy from an engraving of the same subject by Marcantonio (see RCIN 852744) which, in turn, was presumably based upon a lost Raphael design for the ceiling painting. Lettered with artists' names along the lower margin.
