A photograph of a drawing catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the collection of the Grand Duke of Saxe Weimar. The drawing resembles closely Raphael's fresco of The Meeting between Leo the Great and Attila, painted in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican, apart from a few minor details. The drawing may be a copy either after the fresco or after a fully finished modello for it (now lost).
