Abstract
This article examines a letter of Michele Schiavo (1705–71) which describes a rare coin of Didia Clara (daughter of the Emperor Didius Julianus) he had recently acquired. The document, preserved at the Public Library (Biblioteca Comunale) of Palermo and now published for the first time, is worthy of study for several reasons. First of all, it is a significant direct account of Sicilian antiquarianism in the eighteenth century, in which Schiavo provides interesting information about his numismatic collecting methods and aims. Moreover, his consultation of Vaillant’s numismatic monograph testifies to the use of specific bibliographical references among Sicilian antiquarians of the eighteenth century.
