Signed, dated and inscribed: "A. C. Dies f Romae 1794 | Rovine del Piano superiore della Villa di Cassio a Tivoli". Important works of art were found in the villas around Tivoli, here in the villa of Cassius "Apollo with the Nine Muses" (Vatican, Museo Pio-Clementino). The mighty ruin of the former villa, which gives an idea of the size of the architecture, attracts attention with its well-preserved "opus reticulatum"..
