Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

Lettre du 9 septembre 1682 (de Padoue) : Averoldi sent him a coin of Diadumenianus: Patin considered it «maximum horum nummorum», «indubitatae antiquitatis» and there was no suspicion of forgery, so «tales sunt acquirendi nummi quibus nec taedium nec fastidium paritur» (Padova, Museo Bottacin, MB 855, c. [37] ; voir Callegari 2020).
