This impression is of a later state not described by Bartsch. The plate has been cut down approximately 8 mm at the bottom. In place of the inscription described by Bartsch is an inscription “Trionfo di Scipione … Raphael Urb. in. Phls Thom. exc.” Also, the shadows of the hind legs of the horse, and of the right foot of the captive behind the horse, are different from those in the impression illustrated in The Illustrated Bartsch, which is Bartsch’s ii/ii.
