The inscription on the lower right of this early lithograph indicates that it was made at a competing lithographic press in Senefelder’s home city of Munich, indicating that he did not maintain a monopoly on the new technology for long. The print’s subject is the encounter between Julius Caesar and the Gallic chieftain Ariovistus, which was related in the first book of Caesar’s Gallic Wars. Mettenleiter likely chose the subject for its potential popularity with a German audience.
