Inscription: Lettered in cartouche upper center: Spiega l'ombra d'Vgon gli alti secreti / Al duce franco, e in guisa gli ragiona / Ch'egli rompe d'Astrea gl'aspri decreti / Fatti contro Rinaldo, e gli perdona / Indi a cercar di lui contenti e lieti / Drizzano i duo guerrier uerso Ascalona / Oue poco lontan da la marina / Trouan chi lor da aiuto, ed incamina.; bottom center: XIIII
