There are several motifs reminiscent of the Roman Empire in this painting. The foreground is separated from the background, on the right by a fragment of the Colosseum arches while in the rear in a mountainous region, the well-known silhouette of the Colosseum appears. The soldier on the right wears a chased suit of armour.
