The sitter is identified from the letter he holds, which is addressed to 'Nobili Joanna Christophoro Longono Amico'. He is known to have been resident in Milan from 1494-98. The parapet bears an inscription meaning 'You know not what sort of person you were or will be; devote much time to an earnest effort to see what sort of person you are'.
