Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Numi Consulares apud S.D. &c, redundantes ab Ursini Tabulis, a list of duplicate coins in D’Ewes’s collection, again arranged by family. The second page (now out of order, so it looks like the first page) has had a title added in D’Ewes’s own hand: Redundantes me penes Numi Consulares. Underneath the original he has written Vide fol. 2.a. ubi haec quae sequuntur inserenda erant [see page 2a, where the following should have been inserted], although it is not clear to what this refers. At the end of the list, after the Incerta on f.51r, he has written ‘Octodecim numero quae majorem partem omnia in Gorlaeo reperiuntur. Argentea inferiori in copertura chartacea includuntur’ [‘Eighteen in number which for the larger part are all to be found in Gorlaeus’. It is not clear exactly what the second sentence reads or means: something to do with plated coins, e.g. ‘silver [coins] in a covering thinner than paper are included’?].' (Burnett 2020b, p. 518)
