Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Heliogabalus, forgetting his sex, after the example of the priests of Atys, appeared on his car clothed with the long dress and all the gewgaws that women wear; when he caused himself to be drawn along surrounded by legions of nude slave-girls, he carried a fan in the guise of a sceptre… at each side two umbelliferoe held light sunshades of silk, covered with diamonds, mounted on Indian bamboo or on a stem of gold carved and encrusted with the most wondrous of jewels." Written on border: "1883" Includes additional text.
