Inv. Г-5367


in the early impressions above the inscription there is a Latin rhyme by the poet and historian Johannes Stabius. It is absent from the impressions made after 1570. In the same time gaps appear in the nimbi of the saints. As the nimbi are intact in the impressions belonging to the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, it can be supposed that this is an early impression, where the bottom part with the rhyme is cut off; therefore, it is dated before 1570s (М. 219, 2, until the item c)

Other impressions in the Museum collections:

Inv. Г-2402, on paper with a watermark: a two-headed eagle with the letter К (М. 229; Br. 281; 1578–1583). Many strokes are missing in the nimbi of the saints; the impression dates from 1580s
