Alessandria in Piedmont (1055. 1056).At Candia in Lombardy, near Alessandria della Paglia, in making a well for Messer Gualtieri  574 of Candia, the skeleton of a very large boat was found about 10 braccia underground; and as the timber was black and fine, it seemed good to the said Messer Gualtieri to have the mouth of the well lengthened in such a way as that the ends of the boat should be uncovered.


244:574 2: Messer Gualtieri, the same probably as is mentioned in Nos. 672 and 1344.

Next: 1056.
