Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
In Roman mythology, Vertumnus is the god of seasons, and plant growth, as well as of gardens and fruit trees. He could change his form at will; using this power, according to Ovid's Metamorphoses (xiv), he tricked Pomona by disguising himself as an old woman and gaining entry to her orchard, then using a narrative warning of the dangers of rejecting a suitor to seduce her.
The tapestry is lacking its original border and has been stabilized throughout.
