|A pencilled inscription in a period hand on the back of the mount identifies the sitter as Hassan Bey. On the album page, however, he was identified as Abrahim Pasha., possibly a misspelling of ‘Ibrahim Pasha,’ who was a son of the Viceroy of Egypt. Neither of these names, however, appears in Disdéri’s catalogue of March 1861, although several other Arabic or Turkish names do, including Admed-ben-Randoura, Ali-ben-Ismaël, Hassen-Hassen-ben-Kaï d, His Excellency Mussurus Bey and His Excellency Vefyk Effendi.|
