The Cave of Plato. A cavernous room with two groups of philosophers separated by a wall, atop the wall is a row of figurines including Cupid and Bacchus and a light casts a shadow of them against the wall, the group of men at left standing together debating, the group at right in animated discussion in a darker portion of the space; lower margin cut; after Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem. 1604 Engraving
