The three fragments (see .28 and .29) are believed to have come from the same larger tapestry, originally thought to be the Allegory of Pride(A. Bennett), but now identified as part of the Scenes from the Torjan War series.
The inscription along the top of this piece is unrelated, and in fact, belongs to The Triumph of Death over Chastity (1975.4.2) - Anna Bennett
