Cum numerus nobilium nostri Maioris Consilii per Dei clementiam valde auctus sit et in dies augeatur, et pro honore nostri Dominii ac pro bono regimine et conservatione terrarum et locorum nostrarum sit providendum, quod in regiminibus et officiis dictarum terrarum et locorum sint ex nostris nobilibus qui de tempore in temporis mittantur per nostrum Maius Consilium,
vadit pars, quod in Dei nomine et in bona gratia eligi debeat in Maiori Consilio per duas manus electionum, et probetur ad unum unus noster nobilis qui sit rector Medolini per duos annos et tantum plus quantum successoribus suis illuc ire destulerint, habeat de salario in anno et ratione anni id quod habet potestas nostri Adignani ab illa comunitate Medolini et regalias, et duceat secum illam familiam et equos quos tenet et habet potestas nostri Adignani, remanentibus villis que faciunt angarias cum dicto loco supositis cum eodem loco;1
item eligatur in Maiori Consilio per modum et tempus predictum unus noster nobilis qui sit potestas Portularum, habeat de salario in anno et ratione anni id quod habet ille qui est ibi ad presens quod salarium recipiat, et habeat unde habet potestas qui ibi est, et habeat ac teneat illam familiam quam tenet potestas predictis qui est ibi, et hoc fieri debeat postquam vir nobilis ser Iohannes Quirino, cui concessum est dictum regimen per annos quinque, compleverit;2
item simili modo eligatur in Maiori Consilio per modum et tempus predictum unus noster nobilis qui sit potestas ad Duo Castella Istrie, habeat de salario in anno et ratione anni id quod habet potestas qui ibi est ad presens, cum omnibus aliis conditionibus ut superius dicitur de potestate Portularum;3
item eligatur in Maiori Consilio per modum et tempus predictum unus noster nobilis qui sit camerarius Catari, habeat de salario in anno et ratione anni libris mille, tenendo unum famulum ab annis quattuordecim super suis expensis recipiat salarium suum ab illa camera;4
item simili modo eligatur in Maiori Consilio per modum et tempus predictum unus noster nobilis qui sit camerarius et castellanus in Arbo, habeat de salario libris mille in anno et ratione anni, habeat quod est partem contrabanorum et penarum, sicut habet rector, qui rector tenere debeat unum scontrum cum camerario predicto de omnibus intratis, tenendo unum famulum de annis quattuordecim supra suis salario et expensis, recipiat salarium suum ab illa camera, remanentibus cassis Barberio qui exigit trentesimum et castellano;5
item eligatur in Maiori Consilio per annos quatuor unus noster nobilis qui sit salinarius Scutari, cum salario et utilitatibus illius qui ibi est ad presens, recipiat salarium suum ab illa camera nostra;6
item simili modo eligatur in Maiori Consilio per annos quatuor unus noster nobilis qui sit salinarius in Alexio, cum salario et utilitatibus illius qui ibi est ad presens, recipiant salarium suum ab illa camera nostra.7
