The paper focuses on an unedited manuscript preserved in the Municipal Library ‘Mozzi-Borgetti’ at Macerata. The document, written by D. Magrini, a local priest, is included in the correspondences between L. Lanzi and P.P. Torelli during 1791-92, and testifies to the researches about the Roman site of Pausulae at that time. Particularly, the manuscript mentions fifty-four ancient coins found with other Roman antiquities, like inscriptions, gems and sculptures, in the area of S. Claudio Abbey, where Pausulae was supposed to be. The coins, acquired by Magrini and later donated to an unknown priest that brought them with him to Rome, are dispersed now, but their classification permit to reconstruct one of the most conspicuous nucleus of Roman and Byzantine coin findings attested in the Marche region.

Abstract

The paper focuses on an unedited manuscript preserved in the Municipal Library ‘Mozzi-Borgetti’ at Macerata. The document, written by D. Magrini, a local priest, is included in the correspondences between L. Lanzi and P.P. Torelli during 1791-92, and testifies to the researches about the Roman site of Pausulae at that time. Particularly, the manuscript mentions fifty-four ancient coins found with other Roman antiquities, like inscriptions, gems and sculptures, in the area of S. Claudio Abbey, where Pausulae was supposed to be. The coins, acquired by Magrini and later donated to an unknown priest that brought them with him to Rome, are dispersed now, but their classification permit to reconstruct one of the most conspicuous nucleus of Roman and Byzantine coin findings attested in the Marche region.
