La baignade de Cholé, de Daphnis et Chloé

Inscription: Lettered below image: sembloit le bain de Chloé plus redoutable que la / mer dont il étoit échappé. Bref, il lui étoit avis que / son âme fût toujours entre les brigands, tant il / avoit de peine, jeune garçon nourri aux champs, qui ne savoit encore que c'est du brigandage d'amour
