The palace is now occupied by a number of different offices.

2 Ibid., VII, 662. This was the agreed sum for each of the first three years commencing January 15, 1719. 1,100 scudi were paid to the Marchese Giovanni Battista Muti, while the remaining 500 scudi were paid to his mother the Marchesa Alesandra Millini Muti.

4 The first of these palazzetti was at the time occupied by Count Musignani. The lower part of the second of these palazzetti was occupied by the Marchese Giovanni Battista Muti, and the upper part by the Abbé Millini (presumably the brother, or at least a relative, of Muti's mother). The two houses seem not to have been the property of the Marchese Giovanni Battista Muti, but to have been leased by him; the Apostolic Camera paid an additional annual rent of 36 scudi for the first house to Signor Giacinto Manni, and an additional annual rent of 60 scudi for the second house to the Marchese Girolamo Muti.

There are a number of documents in the Archivio di Stato di Roma and in the Archivio Segreto Vaticano which record payments made for this work; a number of these are reprinted as an appendix to this article.

9 In Rome the most common renderings of the Royal Arms are those of King Henry IX and I when he was still Duke of York, i.e. the Royal Arms differenced with the crescent, the standard mark of cadency for a second son. Pantanella seems to have misinterpreted this mark of cadency for an actual heraldic charge.
