Notes NOTES: The source of this engraving is Francesco Scipione Maffei, 'De gli anfiteatri' (Verona, 1728), pl. IIII. This comes from a sketchbook put together by Ambrose Phillipps containing measured drawings and engravings of French and Roman buildings as well as designs for the house and garden buildings at Garendon Park, Leicestershire, the compiler's home.
