The counterparts in the transactions are often members of other aristocratic families from Florence, the most important being the Albizzi, the Capponi, the Morelli and the Strozzi. Less frequent are other kinds of counterparts, such as employees or tenants of the Vincenzo de' Medici, who can pay in kind, or receive in kind payments. Signed repeatedly by Antonio Ciarfalli.
