Possibly a portrait of 'St Paulus'

Possibly a portrait of the 40-guns ‘St Paulus’, north Quarter. On the tafferel is a full-length figure of a man with a book in the left hand and what appears to be a snake coiled round the right arm. At his feet are two winged dragons. Two lions are on the rail above. On the counter is what may be the view of a town. The ‘St Paulus’ was an Indiaman taken into service in 1665 and was captured and burnt the same year. There was another ship called ‘St Paulus’ in service in 1665; she was also an Indiaman of 40 guns, belonging to the Admiralty of Zeeland. She was captured by the English in 1665 and burnt by the Dutch in 1666.
