The Troad is a fine field for conjecture and snipe-shooting, and a good scholar may exercise their feet and faculties to great advantage upon the spot
Beautfiul indeed ...and nowhere near as dodgy as the illustration from Rubens used in the wikipedia page you pointed to!
Yep. The Rubens is appallingly, teeth-grittingly, turn-awayingly embarrassing. It's got all the vices and none of the virtues of those gloriously dodgy covers of 1960s sci-fi magazines...
I particularly like the reservoir tip effect on the quiver...
That is a highlight, yes.
What about same effect on his 'Phrygian cap'? Now THAT'S dodgy.
