This picture, I, Alessandro, painted at the end of the year 1500, in the troubles of Italy, in the half time after the time, during the fulfillment of the eleventh of John, in the second Woe of the Apocalypse, when the devil was loosed for three and the half years. Afterwards he shall be chained according to the twelfth and we shall see him (trodden down) as in this picture.
