Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Imperatores Caesares et Augustae post Heraclium. A short list of four solidi (with an additional sketch of a bronze follis) that starts with Heraclius Constantine, Heraclius Constans and Justinian II and ends with a coin of Anastasius II Artemius (AD 713–15). Interestingly, the last is accompanied by two references, to ‘Octavius de Strada in Vitis Caesarum pag. 280. Levini Hulsij Numismata p. 206’, presumably thus reflecting its rarity.' (Burnett 2020b, pp. 519-20)
