Medium Engraving
English: This book illustration was apparently copied from this one (comparison is easier with this small but flipped crop), which is reputedly made after a Roman bust (an imaginary portrait too). The picture itself is a low-res scan of what was most certainly an engraving (for reproduction in a 1896 printed book). The digital source doesn't provide credits for the illos.
