124 pages (some of which are left blank) numbered in Eckhel's hand, followed by 12 blank leaves - Woytek 2022a, p. 378: "Of minor importance in the present context are the three notebooks in quarto format, nos. 5–7. They have two different types of bindings: nos. 5 and 6 are bound in unassuming orange boards, whereas no. 7 is in a half-leather binding sporting monochrome red marbled paper and a large label on the front board which is, however, left blank. All three notebooks were used by Eckhel for notes and excerpts on miscellaneous antiquarian topics. Notebook no. 6 contains a wealth of information – especially bibliographical references – on various aspects of games in the ancient world, on arms and armour, politics, trade, banquets, weights and measures, music, clothing, buildings, funerals, as well as remarks on ancient geography, topography and chronology.
