Three works bound in a single volume, with the works by Vettori and Hirt being of limited numismatic relevance (though the former includes one numismatic illustration). The work by Giovanni Scarfò (1685–1740) is more heavily numismatic, and discusses Greek and Roman art using statues, coins, bas reliefs and other artefacts housed in the Piccolomini Library in Rome. It is listed by Dekesel, who calls for five folding plates that are not here present (nor is there any indication that they ever were). Dekesel S63 (Scarfò). Hirsch 113. Lipsius 350.
