Drawing with studies for a costume of classical Roman armory. In the center, a standing male figure, with his weight resting on the left foot, and his head turned to his right, wears the outfit of a Roman soldier, with an intricately decorated jacket, a helmet, and strap sandals. His right hand points towards the floor, while holding up the right hand, and pointing above with the index finger. Around him are five more heads, each adorned with a variation of the helmet, made up of different sorts of scrolling motifs, and decorated with feathers and beads.
