Fig.y Benesch 428, Detail

Figs w-y: Compare the firm outlines of the arm and hand in Fig.w with those in the nearer arm in Fig.x (including the little finger). Also, both forearms are subtly shaded before the wrist in an identical manner (the upper section of the exposed arm in Fig.w, the forearm in Fig.x).
The more sketchily drawn further hand in Fig.x seems compatible with that in Fig.y.
