Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

‘Nov. 1662, memorandum that Dr. <Herbert> Pelham of Magd. Coll. lent to me 3 Roman coines that were about 40 yeares since found at Stow Wood. (i) One was off Caligula, as it should seeme, but upon one side where the face is ’tis thus wrote: IMP. C. ALLEC[T]VS. P F. A. V. – on the revers, a woman with such a thing in her right hand ([drawing of a caduceus]) and the letter S. on the right side of her and P. on the left; the words that are round her cannot be read. (ii) The other is of the emperor Constantine with his face on one side and on the revers an armed man, an inscription about it, and the two letters of S. P. on each side of it. (iii) The other seems to be of Theodosius, and on the revers is PIETAS.—This information I gave to Dr. (Robert) Plot.’
