Lettering

Fortis Atlantaeos humeris subiisse labores / Dicitur Alcides sustinuisse polum. / Sol novus, occiduusque suâ cervice perpendit, / Et coeli longas astra obiere vias. / Pondera fert mundi sapiens, dominabitur astris, / Ille suae vitae qui bene fulcit onus. Annibal Carraccius pinxit in aedibus Farnesianis. Petrus Aquila delineavit et sculp. Bears number: 3
