The attribution to Caravaggio is debated, however, most of the scholars accept it as an original Caravaggio in a bad state of preservation. The figure of Pilate is an assumed self-portrait of Caravaggio.

There is another version in the Museo Nazionale in Messina which is probably the work of a Sicilian follower of Caravaggio or a crude copy of an original Caravaggio.
