Note 112
From Chapter 66 of the Decline & Fall

See the literary history of Cosmo and Lorenzo of Medicis, in Tiraboschi (tom. vi. P. i. l. i. c. 2), who bestows a due measure of praise on Alphonso of Arragon, king of Naples, the dukes of Milan, Ferrara Urbino, etc. The republic of Venice has deserved the least from the gratitude of scholars.
