According to general opinion, this is one of the finest pictures in the first class of great works. The most striking groups are an old soldier raising his dying son,--two soldiers fighting in the same part, and Maxentius in the Tiber, vainly struggling to extricate himself. [P. 19; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Engravings" and noted as after the "Celebrated Frescoes of Raphael, in the Halls of the Vatican."]
