A Petro qui dicitur Coco et Otta iugalium et ab Guiberto filio eius et Bellavida item iugalibus, unde odie cartam vendicionis fecerunt de alia medietate ipsius vinee sperm area eius in Manus et potestatem Anselmi qui dicitur Gilius, de Suprascripta civitate... ", Modification demonstrated for example by an act of 1362 written in Poschiavo in the Canton of Graubünden, where a certain Zillio was named Gabardo Venosta.
