Mirabello Cavalori: 'A Discussion'
The subject was once identified as Herod and the Three Magi (New Testament, Matthew 2: 7), but none of the figures is shown with a king's attributes.

Saints and prophets had been depicted in active debate in this manner by Donatello (1368 - 1466) and other Florentine artists. This painting was formerly attributed to Pontormo.
