Abstract:
Manuscript on parchment of a Ducale issued in the name of Leonardo Loredan, doge of Venice (1438-1521), giving instructions to Andrea Marcello as Governor of Dulcigno (now Ulcinj, Yugoslavia). The document is dated 8 August 1513, and signed by "Victor Blanchus Secretarius," the same individual who signed Beinecke MS 104, a Venetian ducale dated 1515. On ff. 12v-13r is a directive from the Venetian Council of the X, signed by Rafael Iordannis, regarding Andrea Marcello, captain of Dulcingo, and the payment of custom duties; followed by a yearly and quarterly outline of salaries owed, in a different but contemporary hand, signed Zune (Giovanni) Spineli [?].
