Commentary


Ces jetons étaient distribués aux membres de l'Académie lors de leurs réunions du lundi, jeudi et samedi. On appelait " jetonniers " les académiciens remarqués pour leur assiduité aux réunions. En 1719, ce jeton a pu être entre les mains de Claude Gros de Boze. Celui-ci, né à Lyon le 28 janvier 1680, fut numismate et garde, en 1719, du Cabinet des antiques dont il classa la collection. Il fut reçu à l’Académie par André Dacier. Il mourut le 10 septembre 1753.
