The article concentrates on how the motif of the antique fable “Heracles and the Ox-Driver” transformed in a series of artefacts by Giovanni Castrucci, Lodovico Pozzoserrato and Pirro Ligorio from the 16th and 17th centuries. It demonstrates how at times the courses and interpretations of iconographic themes can be complex and difficult to trace, and how easily one can be swayed to conclude that a case is so simple and straightforward that there is in fact nothing to resolve.
