'BL, Harley MS 6941, ff.13–16, annotated ‘Mr Masson’s Accnt of Rhescuporis K. of Thrace.’ A description of the coin is followed by the discussion, which begins ‘Num’ hicce ferreus 3 moduli in Reverendi doctiss. humanissimiq’ viri D. Covel d.d., ac Collegii Christi apud Cantabrigiensis Praefecti meritissimi Cimelio prostans,’ and goes on to discuss the history and chronology of Rhescuporis. Although undated, the note is kept next to the letter of 1702 in the same volume of Harleian papers, although it is not mentioned in the letter.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 982 n. 19)
