Inscription

Inscribed, in plate, lower left margin: Invente et grave par C. Gillot; lower center; Feste de DIANE, troublee par des Satyres. / A Paris chez Basan. Maintes Nimphes enchanteresses / Lasses de courir les forests / Celebroient dans un Antre frais / La Deesse des chasseresses. / Le Saytre y vient a grand pas, / La Nymphe a son aspect redouble sa priere, / Mais malheureusement la Deesse est de piere / Et le Sayre ne l'est pas./ Avec une frayeur extreme / Chacune fuit ce laid museau; / Elles n'eussent pas fuit de meme / Si c'eut ete quelque gent Damoiseau. / Dubruit. Watermark: AUVERGNE 1749 [?]
