Data Vis from Dante

Following a lot of recent circular posts, here is some early “data visualization” from 1793.  The illustration is of from Danto’s Devina Commedia, designed by John Flaxman and engraved by Tommaso Piroli.  The inscription, mis-transcibed on Wikipedia, reads “Of the High Light appeared to me three circles, Of three colors and continence“.
