This stamp refers to the beginning of the first Canto of Dante's Inferno: "Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura, che la diritta via era smarrita" (Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward path had been lost) and depicts a miniature taken from the Codice Urbinate Latino 365.
