Foto sup 2107, verso del supporto secondario: nota anonima manoscritta: "Mariano Soccino, a celebrated jurisconsult, was born at Siena in 1401. He died in 1467. / Pius II in his letters praises him grently. Bayle puts him in his dictionary. / Mariano was the great, great, grandfather of the celebrated heresiarch, Fausto Soccino, / who died in Poland in 1604. / Vecchietta was a goldsmith and painter of Siena, born in 1412 and dead in 1480. / He completed the bronze work of the Baptistery of the Duomo, finishing even some of / Donatello's incomplete productions. / His effigy of Soccino was formerly in S. Domenico of Siena; it is now in the Bargello of Florence. Its head, hand and feet were probably modelled from the life; / the drapery is hard".
