Public Notes
The text shows surprising divergences here from the normative text of this well-known scene, compared with Mohl's edition, in which the breakline after is not found.

The painting has been reproduced in Stchoukine, Les peintures des manuscrits Safavis a 1587, Paris, 1959, pl. LXXX; and by Robinson, Persian drawings, New York, 1965, pl. 92; ibid., Persian paintings, London V & A, 1965, pl. 25; and ibid., Persian paintings in the India Office library, London, 1976, p. 119.
