Papi di Beninchase was a dyer who died in June of 1420, leaving behind a houseful of goods to his widow Sandra. Among his belonging were the usual garments, linens, furniture items and housewares found in many Florentine households. And yet, the inventory concludes with a list of four books, including a work by Dante and the letters of Ovid in the vernacular, which hints at the cultural expectations of this Florentine dyer.
