See Arthur Engel, “Inventaire de la Casa de Pilatos en 1752,” Bulletin Hispanique
5 (1903): pp. 259-271, where it is listed as “Otra estátua de Hercúles de mármol
moderna” among the “Estátuas del la Galeria alta de la Libreria – En esta galeria
que mira al jardin.” The dimensions are designated as being the same as the
previous statue depicting Bacchus, which is 7 palmos, the equivalent of about 146
cm, a height compatible with the present work.
This work is first listed in the Libro de las cuentas de la construcción y fábrica del Real
Colegio Seminario de Corpus Christi, Archivo del Colegio del Corpus Christi de
Valencia: Ms.183b, Histórico-General (Colegio y Capilla)-Edificio, fol. 276r. See

Juan de Ribera en Valencia: su colección de escultura clásica,” Espacio, tiempo y
forma 7 (2013): p. 28.
This was one of the structures designed by Benvenuto Tortello in mid-to-late
1560s. See Vincente Leó Cañal, La Casa de Pilatos: Biografía de un palacio
sevillano (Seville: Universidad de Sevilla, 2017), pp. 204-277.
See Louis A. Waldman, “A case of mistaken identity: The Martellini Jupiter
by Giovanni di Scherano Fancelli,” The Burlington Magazine 150 (1998-1999):
pp. 788-798. The work, measuring 243 x 83 x 57 cm, was first published by
Hildegard Utz, “Giovanni Fancelli detto Nanni di Stocco,” Paragone 17 (1966):
pp. 58-62, however, she did not identify its author as Giovanni di Scherano
Fancelli, but rather as his uncle, Giovanni di Paolo Fancelli known as Nanni di
Stocco, pupil and assistant of Bandinelli, and author of several statues in the
Certosa di Firenze.
