Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'f.220r has the title Numi Romani et Anglici comparandi, but there is no text. This may perhaps have been intended for a comparison of the values of Roman and English coins, a recurrent topic since the 16th century; if so, it may have destined for the Theatrum Numaria Romanum.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 520)
