A caprice with an allegorical tomb of the Earl of Godolphin, with people in classical costume performing a sacrifice under a ruined triumphal arch. Behind is a Romanised pyramid, probably based on Rome's tomb of Cestius. From ''Tombeaux des princes et des grands capitaines et autres hommes illustres qui ont fleuri dans la Grande Bretagne vers la fin du XVIIe et le commencement du XVIIIe'', first published in 1741 by theatre manager and art dealer Owen Swiny (1676-1754). Although Swiny planned the series to be 25 plates, only nine were issued. When Swiny died his estate was left in trust for actress Margaret (Peg) Woffington; his collection of paintings were sold in 1755, when presumably Boydell bought the plates of this series.
