Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'[Saffron Waldon] lies just above the London road as you go by Audley-Inn, and upon it are the visible remains of a square work, where the author of Sir Thomas Smith’s life tells us Roman money has been found, particularly a golden coin of Claudius, which is also confirmed by Hollinshed, who mentions likewise the finding of a great antique silver cup there.' (Nichols 1781-1790, pp. 117-20; Burnett 2020b, p. 78, n. 28)
