Notes:
This medallion reproduces a marble bust by an anonymous artist who worked in the workshop of Andera del Verrocchio. It comes from the house of Ardiaca in Barcelona (it probably initially came from the house Mai-Pinós) and it was housed in the Museu Provincial d’Antiguitats (Provincial Antiquities Museum). Today it is preserved in the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia) (MNAC 14021) as a loan from the Acadèmia de Bones Lletres (the Academy of Literature) of Barcelona
