The town has not been identified, the two figures in classical dress in the lower right-hand corner may be Aeneas and Sibyl.

This picture was formerly attributed to Cornelis van Poelenburgh, but van Lint painted a number of Italian views of this type to which it is closely related in style and subject matter.
