Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-16 septembre 1772 : « On this morning, Mr Giuseppe Bartoli was with me for some time who arrived last night from Venice and will leave today at noon for Turin in order to pass by on his way to stay in Paris. This man of letters is reader of the ‘belles lettres’ at the University of Turin and he also holds the office of antiquarian of his Sardinian Majesty, but it is for some time that he is away from Turin, for reasons of an encounter with the Royal ministers, but I believe that the main reason boils down to the fact that those ministers do not think it convenient that a foreigner be antiquarian of his Majesty, in any case the king continues to pay his pension as lecturer. I asked Bartoli whether he had any antiquity with him, and he told me to have in his travelling desk a few medals, among which was a gold coin of Aribertus, king of the Lombards, and for this reason I went with him to his accommodation which is the Public Inn of the Three Magi, and when I saw the medals I purchased the one of Aribertus which is well dear to me; a beautiful Maximianus in gold with the reverse of Herculi Victori: a gold quinarius of Antemius; and a Consular silver medal minted only on one side. This way it is a pleasure to admit a foreigner: while I lose some hour of my time, I acquire it back in some other way by increasing my collection” (Doyen – Rambach 2020, p. 19, note 98).
