Inscription: Lettered in cartouche upper center: Rende popolo reo la selua intorno / Cinta di strane imagini e d'horrore / Si che i fabri e i guerrier tosto ritorno / Fan pieni di uergogna, e di timore. / Ventra Tancredi, ma d'inganni adorno / Vince feminil pianto inutto core. / Porta al campo gran sete immensa arsura, / L'estingue con la pioggia alta ventura.
