Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

-Lettre du 5 février 1728 (de Leiden): He now recognises O. as a rival prince of numismatics: but you will find me a strong adversary. He discusses learnedly his coin inscribed Nixias: advising O. to go in for Greek coins (Latin ones go cheaply); remarks that his collection of Greek coins deserves a high place on the roll of collections and mentions receipt last year of several thousand from Turkey and elsewhere and from the Marckian? store and now by a stroke of good fortune the whole of the Thesaurus Morellianus, over 1,000 coins. Morellius had died before he had interpreted them. (Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS D’Orville 486 fol. 82).
