On November 5, 1386, Florentine apothecary Deo di Vanni designated his unnamed male sons as heirs to his estate. Sometime thereafter, and before 1388, Deo died and the assets passed to the Office of the Wards for management. Among the most interesting items in the inventory is a "libro zolfato di chiesa," a book of sacred music with notation for singing (f. 7v), and a collection of empty bottles, presumably to be used in his apothecary shop located in the city's San Lorenzo neighborhood (f. 8v).
