Additional Information about the Print

Walcot has not thought to reverse the SPQR and ROMA lettering on the plate, so it prints backwards in the print. The only other impression of this plate I have seen also had the tablet at the foot blank.

The illustration in the Dickins’ book (entitled Romans in the Forum, though in the Chronological List of Etchings in the same book it is given as Patricians in the Forum, Rome) shows only the vignette scene of the Forum, though the measurements given for the plate are those which include the blank tablet and symbols of Rome at the foot, so it is possible that after publication in 1917 the plate may have been cut down.
