Notes

This is a useful illustration of the difference in scale between figures and architectural details on the Column. In this close-up particular attention has been made to depict the specific details of the structures, including the row of statues on the building in the foreground, which suggests that this was a real town with known buildings that might have been recognisable to the viewer.
