War scene (Escena bélica)
Among the characters in combat we can find two figures who could be the Assyrian king and hisgeneral, because the character on the left, with a shield decorated with a large face, is repeated throughout the series and can be identified as Holofernes. The Book of Judith describes a battle waged by the troops of Nebuchadnezzar against King Arpachshad (Judith 1, 13-15).
