Cephalus and Procris, François Spierincx, c. 1593 - c. 1610
To test the faithfulness of his wife Procris, Cephalus disguised himself and tried to seduce her. Just when she was about to give in, he revealed himself. In her distress, Procris fled to the goddess Diana, but was eventually reconciled with her husband. In the foreground, Diana and Procris bid each other farewell.
