DOC.12 Arezzo, February 23, 1529 (modern style)

Rosso appoints as his procurator the Florentine Giovanni Nicola Beccario (or del Becchaio; see DOC.11). This would be the same attorney he appointed a year earlier in Borgo Sansepolcro to handle his affairs in Florence and elsewhere, and the same would seem to apply here. The document mentions, among other causes in need of an attorney’s services, the possibility of injury by slander.
