An allegorical scene representing the government of Pope Benedict XIV. There are two central female figures, one standing to the right with drapes billowing behind her, one seated to the left wearing a crown, and both gesturing toward a group of indistinct figures on the far left, one of whom is wearing a winged helmet. To the far right there are another two female figures, one standing, one seated with a cornucopia. The scene is framed with Rococo scrolls and garlands.
