"Unknown. Rescue of Ulysses. 37 x 26. Neptune, the declared enemy of Ulysses, once found him in the course of his long wanderings, on a raft in mid-ocean. He made Ulysses swim for his life two whole days and nights, by raising a storm which destroyed his raft. The luckless hero was rescued by Minerva and the sea nymphs, while Neptune looked on in disgust."
