Engraving depicting the ruins of a Greek theatre in Sicily, with a pair of goatherds in the foreground. The remaining structure is likely Roman as it was made with bricks, however the planning is almost certainly Greek, leading many to believe the Romans rebuilt what had previously existed, c. 200 BCE. Paper browning, mild creases to corners. Very good.
