Engraving on copper in folio, on textured paper. 1722.
Beautiful engraving depicting two famous Greek-Roman statues: the wrestlers, preserved in the Uffizi, it’s representative of the martial art of PANKRATION, a violent precursor of modern Mixed Martial Arts (MMA); and that of the Gladiator Borghese, found in the seventeenth century in Anzio and now in the Louvre Museum (since it has been sold to Napoleon).
Out of curiosity: this engraving was chosen by the compilers of the page of Wikipedia Italy and Wikipedia Spain to accompany the biographical description of Mountfaucon.
Bernard de Montfaucon, a French Benedictine monk, was the initiator of palaeography (he was the first to use this term) and made a huge contribution to the birth of archaeology.
