-Lettre du 25 nov. 1701 (de Munich): “Your letter to Mr Morellus procured me with very great civilities from him, and he not only showed me all the Count of Schwartzburg medals, and gave me several very learned instructions, but he also made me a present of several valuable Roman coins. From Arnstadt, I went to Nuremberg” (Kemble 1857, p. 255, nr. 108; Babin - Van den Heuvel - Widmaier 2012, Band 20, p. 619, Letter 356; Callataÿ 2015, p. 311, II.2; Burnett 2020b, p. 1592).
