Plate, earthenware covered front and back with a presumed tin-glaze. Painted on the front Aeneas carrying Anchises away from Troy (both are naked) with Ascanius walking ahead (a cloak over his shoulder and a casket in his hand). A shield of arms (perhaps of Squarzioni) hangs from a tree showing Hercules and the lion; the subject is from the Aeneid after an engraving after Raphael.
