This is an illustration for Boydell's Shakespeare. This is a portrait remnant of 'Timons of Athens' and shows a scene from Act IV, Scene 3, where Timon is visited in the woods by Alcibiades and his mistresses and gives them some of the buried treasure he has found digging for food. This fragment shows Alcibiades holding a spear in his right hand and with his chin in his left as he considers the gold offered by Timon.
