    Cook 2011, nr. 88:
    ‘A fragmented group of a Satyr and a goat’ (TY 10/3, fo. 8). Townley nowhere provides a more explicit description of this symplegma, which is not mentioned at all in the priced lists or the parlour catalogues.
    Found in March 1773 in the Villa Casali (Bodleian Ms Add D 71, fo. 221).
    Bought from Giuseppe Reghi on 25 April 1773 for 5 Scudi (TY 8/4). The price is quoted as 2 Zecchini in TY 10/3 (cf. ST 1, fo. 18r), with 16 Zecchini for restoration, amounting to £8.11s. The restoration is recorded in ST 1 (fo. 36r) on 30 July 1773 at 32.80 Scudi.
    When Townley left Rome in November 1773, the sculpture was left with Jenkins together with others listed in a letter from Jenkins dated 13 November (TY 7/319).
