Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'A summary list of the whole collection, giving the total for each emperor or person by metal. Many additions and alterations were made, especially for the Julio-Claudian period, thereby making it very difficult to see what the totals originally should have been.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 518; the list is transcribed at pp. 1465-6 and further analysed at pp. 1471-2)
