Caelestis ac vulgaris Amoris imagines quatuor in totidem apsidis angulis pictae a quibus pendent allegoriae et argumenta fabularum. Laureae coronae immortali proposito praemio, caelestis Amor cum vulgari Amore luctatur, lugentem crinibus trahit. Supremus Amor impuram facem vulgari Amori auellere conatur. Caelestis, atque humani Amoris mutuus amplexus, siue appetitus cum ratione coniunctio, in qua virtus consistit. Anteros Heroti, siue iniusto Amori palmae ramum subtrahit. Annibal Carraccius pinx. in aedibus farnesianis. … Petrus Aquila delin. et sculp.
