Greek Bible Art: Woman Taken in Adultery

The image shows Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (source). This verse is from John 8:8.

καὶ πάλιν κατακύψας ἔγραφεν εἰς τὴν γῆν.
Et iterum se inclinans, scribebat in terra.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
