Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797
Probably a Knight of Malta because, like Thorvaldsen himself, he had arrived from Malta as appears below.
Thiele I, p. 78 takes this to mean that the knight was on the same boat as Thorvaldsen. As mentioned above in the comment to tomorrow, the passenger list of the speronaro that conveyed Thorvaldsen from Malta to Sicily has not been checked in the National Archives of Malta.
The passenger list of another possible means of transport – the schifazzo – does not seem to include a Knight of Malta, see Sørensen & Schirò, op. cit., p. 100.
