'Cassoni' were part of the furnishing of the Italian bedchamber and were often painted. This chest was probably rebuilt in the 19th century, and it has also been entirely regilded.

The story on the front comes from the historians Plutarch and Livy. On the right it shows the Roman general Camillus on a white horse, refusing to take the besieged city of the Falerians by treachery.

97 x 200 x 75 cm; main panel, tempera on wood, 38.4 x 127.6 cm.
