The x-ray image revealed that the two figures flanking the composition experienced a considerable number of changes, especially throughout the drapery. The bulky and awkward position of the kneeling woman's feet suggests that a painter or apprentice with less experience may have worked in this area. It was not uncommon for the edges of large format paintings to remain unfinished for a period of time, eventually being completed and/or adjusted by the original painter or a different artist at a later date.

Several changes were made to the figures of Abner and David. Abner's elaborate feather plume can clearly be seen in the x-ray image as well as the original position of his head and helmet. The hilt of David's sword was initially above his head while multiple changes were made to the hands and fingers of both figures.

The x-ray image revealed that the two figures flanking the composition experienced a considerable number of changes, especially throughout the drapery. The bulky and awkward proportions of the soldier's head and arm suggests that a painter or apprentice with less experience may have worked in this area. It was not uncommon for the edges of large format paintings to remain unfinished for a period of time, eventually being completed and/or adjusted by the original painter or a different artist at a later date. Here the entire figure was enlarged as the original position of the arm and shoulder can be seen in the x-ray. Cross-sectional analysis also revealed that the soldier was originally depicted wearing an elaborate metal tunic (lorica segmentata) instead of a yellow fabric tunic.
