This storyboard does not have a description.
Virginius, a knight, has only one child, Virginia, whose beauty is beyond compare and who is endowed with all the other noble virtues.
A judge named Appius catches sight of the daughter, is smitten by her beauty and purity, and determines to have her at any cost. He hires Claudio, the town’s blackguard and pays him to help him steal Virginia.
In court, Claudius falsely accuses Virginius of having stolen Virginia from his house many years ago and keeping her all these years, pretending that she is his daughter. The evil judge orders that the young girl be brought immediately to the court.
Virginius returns home and calls his daughter into his presence. She must, he says, accept either death or shame at the hands of Claudius and Apius
Virginia tells her father: "Blessed be God that I shall die a Maid (virgin), I take my death rather than take my shame. Then she faints, and her father "smote off her head."
The judge orders the knight hanged for murder, but a throng of citizens, aroused by the Apius' treachery, imprisons the judge. Claudius is to be hanged, but the knight pleads mercy and suggests exile instead. "Sinners will eventually be punished"
