Thanks Hans! Any idea who the actor might be? I also do think the text was added by someone later, so the date (1803) may or may not be accurate as to the age of the print? It seems, based on the Ichikawa mon on the costume that this could be either:
Ichikawa Hakuen I (Ichikawa Danjuro V) - died 1806,
or his adopted son
Ichikawa Danjuro VI - but he died 1799. If the print is from 1803 then it seems his father is more likely?
