Provenance Details

Ex Numismatica Ars Classica 37 (17 February 2007), lot 1023.


The old location of the village of San Lorenzo, in the marshes and swamps along Lake Bolseno, made malaria a constant problem. In the 1770s, Papal authorities constructed a new village on a hill overlooking the lake.
