Engraving. 260 x 171mm (10¼ x 6¾").
Juno angers Jupiter by seeing his partiality to the Trojans and as such forms a design to over-reach him: she sets off her charms with the utmost car, and obtains the magic girdle of Venus. Homer's Illiad, the ancient Greek epic poem; set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy, by a coalition of Greek states. It tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles.
