Note
This inscription is more closely related to the corresponding inscription in the Alma de un condenado en el infierno at the Convento de la Merced del Cusco (PESSCA 5503B) than either one of them is to the published poem (PESSCA 5494A). Thus, like the inscription in the Mercedarian painting (and unlike the published poem), this inscription has BRONSES (rather than BRONCES) in the second verse; AQUI (rather than ALLI) in the sixth verse; and AQUESTE (rather than AQUEL) in the seventh verse. Furthermore, the inscription bears the same position in the Huaro painting as it does in the Mercedarian painting (below the image and third from the left). And similar points can be made about three of the other four inscriptions in the Huaro painting vis-à-vis its Mercedarian counterpart.
