Barabbas and two other thieves are restrained and in cuffs, and appear to be surrounded by a number of soldiers in the background. According to the Synoptic Gospels, Barabbas, imprisoned for murder and insurrection against the Roman state according to Mark and Luke, was released by Pontius Pilate according to a Passover tradition whereby a prisoner could have their death sentence communted by popular demand. The story goes that the crowd of Jewish people ask for Barabbas's release, thereby condemning Jesus to death, though the plausibility of Barabbas's release is contested by some historians.

An army of bears storm a hill defended by frogs with cannon, bayoneting and shooting some as others hop into a pond to escape.

The BM has two examples, one matching this state, and another with a different title ('Im Belles Ferro Ceciderunt Igne Robusti') and joke signatures, from the Lennox-Boyd collection, as this example. The collector's stamp, a blind-stamped Napoleonic Bee, is that of William J. Latta of Philadelphia, a collector of Napolionic prints, who began his collection c.1880, sold it Anderson Galleries, New York, in four sales 1913-4. Lugt (L.2825) says of the collection that it ''was reputed to be the most beautiful of its kind in the world. The portraits were remarkable for the beauty of the prints and the rarity of the states; the series of caricatures was particularly comprehensive''.
