Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

2 May 1591 (from Antwerp): “S. P. optime nepos. Litteras tuas argumenti plenas gratissime accepi. Tu nondum quae ego cum Woudnellii mercibus miserum, intellego. Accipies autem, spero. Nummos quos apud Askum vidisti, novi memoria, eosdem enim mihi ostendit olim, quae desiderat, desideranda sunt, potis quam possidenda, quis enim Pescennium Nigrum ex AE? Si vellet carere aureo suo Caro, haberet à me Alex. Magnum, aut Philippum eius patrem, etiam ex auro, extra omnem controversiam antiquum, praeterea integerrimum. Scis, et scit quantum auro sint ponderosiores prisci hi nummi, qua milli declinantis Imperii, sub quo Carus. Theatrum meum recudo, eius media pars recusa ante annum fuit, inter quam folium quod Britannicas continet; itaque illud iam mutari non potest. De huius virginibus quod tam benè mereri studeas, te laudo plurimum” – comments on various plates of the Theatrum but without numismatic relevance (Paris, Fondation Custodia, Frits Lugt Collection, 1972 A-3; Hessels 1887, no. 196, p. 473-474).
