Murder in the Castle, in Rome, Italy more
This engraving (i think) actually shows the discovery of the body of the Roman emperor Nero just after he had killed himself, but i am far from certain; the men’s swords are drawn.
There are three men in long robes pointing their swords at a man prone on the ground, face up, arms outstretched. It is a throne room, with vast pillars having ornate carving, and Roman-style semicircular arches.
The engraving is signed Fusté, but i am not certain exactly who is meant. There is also a monogram SJ (or JS) for the engraver.
