A photograph of a drawing formerly thought to be by Raphael now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (inv. no.WA1846.276). The drawing is now generally regarded as a copy of a lost original study by Raphael for the arm of the foremost figure running alongside the rider in the centre-right foreground of the fresco of The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple, painted in 1511-12 in the Stanza di Eliodoro in the Vatican. A photograph of the fresco can be found at RCIN 852670.
