The article focuses on the grand fresco cycle at the audience hall of the Bishop's Palace in Ostia, Rome, commissioned by Cardinal Raffaele Riario. It mentions that the fresco, which was executed by a group of artists led by Jacopo Ripanda and Baldasarre Peruzzi, is aimed to celebrate Pope Julius II's yet-to-be victory in reclaiming the lost papal territories. It discusses the Fresco "Funeral of Trajan" as the only different cycle from the group.
