Description This "cassone" (large chest) is elaborately decorated with mythological figures, including reclining river gods holding bountiful cornucopias (horns of plenty) on the front panel. The large carved coat of arms at center flanked by winged "putti" is thought to be that of the wealthy Spreta family.
