Fascinating engraving containing two aerial views of the city, one as it was at the beginning of the first century BCE, and the other a contemporaneous view. Each is accompanied by legends listing important structures and places that are keyed to the plans. In the lower right is a vignette of Moses receiving the Commandments along with Aaron, whose garments and accouterments are listed in the table to the right.
