Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

23 June 1726 (from Paris): “Je viens d’acquérir une médaille qui frappe par sa singularité ; c’est un Prusias, Roy de Bithynie, et ce qu’il a d’extraordinaire est que la tête d’Apollon occupe tout un côté et l’autre a une Victoire, mais ce que je n’avais jamais vu, c’est que sur la joue d’Apollon est frappé en petit la tête de Prusias, avec son diadème” (Capitaine 1855, no. 35).
