Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

5 Nov. 1582 (from Augsburg): evokes the misanthropy of Peutinger who refuses to show his library and his Table; agrees with Ortelius on the reading of a monetary legend: “ad tuam sententiam de dictione facile tibi assentior et fieri potuit ut pro legerim, de nummo cujus sit, non mihi satis constat cuius sit, forte dom. Marci, videbo per occasionem” (Austin, Harry Ransom Center: HRHRC Collection, HRC 55; Hessels 1887, no. 117, p. 277-279).
