357 pages numbered in Eckhel's hand, followed by 12 blnak leaves; Woytek 2022a, p. 378: "Of minor importance in the present context are the three notebooks in quarto format, nos. 5–7. They have two different types of bindings: nos. 5 and 6 are bound in unassuming orange boards, whereas no. 7 is in a half-leather binding sporting monochrome red marbled paper and a large label on the front board which is, however, left blank. All three notebooks were used by Eckhel for notes and excerpts on miscellaneous antiquarian topics. ... Its companion volume, the bulky notebook no. 5, is dedicated entirely to ancient religion, religious practice and mythology; again, Eckhel here compiled mainly references to ancient primary textual sources and to the contemporary secondary literature".
