Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

A critical review of two recent books by Dodwell and Walker.

'A detailed critique of Dodwell's Camden lectures. Bonnet was critical of Dodwell’s ready acceptance of dubious coins, and gave a set of criticisms of certain passages: for example, writing at length on the date at which Trajan took the name Optimus, and criticising him for making mistakes, such as when he said Otho and Vitellius were not recognised on the coinage of Alexandria.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 566)
