Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'In the commentary which he wrote on the section of Book XXXIII of the Digest, which deals with legacies of furniture, Peutinger discussed the names of vessels of various types and materials. He moved from Crystallina, to Crater and then:

item Chrausius
Imperator. et ut \ex/ eius Nomismate facile conspicimus, barbam intorta’ gestabat, inquit quidem Sextus Aurelius Victor in Diocletiano Caesare hoc tempore Chrausius in Galliis Achilleus apud Aegyptum Iulianus in Italia Imperatores effecti. vbi corrupte legitur Carausio. nos quidem nomisma \ argenteum/ habemus, quod Brugis Clarissimus Thomas Morus, Serenissimi Angloru’ regis a Legato, vir plane eruditionis et humanitatis maximae, cum nomine Rei publicae Augustae Vindelicoru’, dulcissimae Patriae nostrae Imp. Caes. Karolumo Augustumo V \a nobis/ salutatuso et ut dicitur obedientia non solum debita sed et adparatissima voluntate praestita esset, dono dedit. est autem nomisma hoc, inscriptionis talis. Imp Chrausius P F Aug Felicitas Aug R S R.

[Next, Chrausius the Emperor. And as we easily see from his coin, he wore a curly beard. And Sextus Aurelius Victor says in his Diocletian Caesar that ‘in this t\ime Chrausius was made emperor in Gaul, Achilleus in Egypt and Julian in Italy.’ There ‘Carausio’ is read, corruptly. And I have a silver coin which the renowned Thomas More, ambassador of the most Serene king of the English and a man obviously of the greatest learning and kindness, gave me at Bruges, when in the name of my country, the Republic of Augsburg, the Emperor Charles V was greeted by me and not only was the required obedience shown, but it was done so with the most ready willingness. Now this coin has an inscription like this: Imp Chrausius P F Aug Felicitas Aug. R S R.]'
