One of the earliest works (watercolour drawing) in the Collection of Drawings and Sketches probably by a Cretan artist and most likely intended for display purposes. On the back it has handwriting exercises and rough sketches of figures from a later period. This working drawing came from Sinai and was given to the Byzantine Museum by George Sotiriou.
