For this print, the right section of which seems to be related to the destroyed stucco panel to the left of the Scene of Sacrifice in the Gallery of Francis I, see under P.22, VII North, where it is suggested that the etching, in the same direction as the stucco, may be based on a lost drawing by Rosso.
