The Pyrrhus speech is highly visual, suggesting that Shakespeare was
describing some graphic image he had seen, of which there were plenty.
I've been searching through Aeneid bookplates, engravings, tapestries,
etc. to find a match, coming close but never perfect.  Any suggestions?

Cheers, Fran Barasch
