Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'Bodleian Library, MS Ashmole 1148, ff.397ff., consists of 85 handwritten pages by Ashmole, headed ‘Transcribed from Abraham Gorlaeus his Thesaurus Numismatum Romanorum, Printed 1605’. It is an exact transcription, and presumably was what Ashmole worked from. The ‘Omissa’ at the end of Gorlaeus have been inserted in the correct places. Puzzlingly there do seem to be a few other additions.' (Burnett 2020b, p. 341 n. 201)
