A woman at the Last Supper

 I have commented before on a woman at the Last Supper

 in Da Vinci's famous picture:

and Federico Barocci's, painted in 1580,

Here's still another manifestation:

Hendrick Goltzius, The Last Supper, 1598. Engraving, state i/iii, plate and sheet 20.1 x 13.4 cm. University of San Diego

The second person to Christ's left is pretty clearly a young woman - notice her hair, youthful features, no beard. He also seem to have his arm around a child!
