More Information About the Print:

A certain portion of the Mount of Purgatory, formed of white marble, is engraved with figures representing stories illustrative of the virtue of humility.

Among these is that anecdote of Trajan (sometimes told also of Hadrian) which relates that one day, when setting out on an expedition, surrounded by his legions, he was accosted by a widow, who with tears exclaimed, " Grant me vengeance, sire. My son is murdered." Trajan replied, "Wait till I return," "But if you do not return?" urged the widow. "Then my successor will right you," said the Emperor. The widow, still pressing her case, asked, " What, sire, is another's good to you, if you neglect your own?" Upon which the Emperor said, "It seems that my duty should be performed ere I move hence, So justice wills, and pity bids me stay."

The scene as represented by M. Dore has a look at once sculpturesque and visionary.
