Hercules and Antaeus are shown between four broken all’antica pillars. This plaquette may have been part of the same series as the Mars and Victory plaquette in the Lehman Collection (1975.1.1345). A variant by Moderno exists with identical figures placed under a vault. The fine and crisp cast probably dates from the sixteenth century.
