4x14+22

4x14+22
 
As the Pierpont-Morgan-Bergamo-Tarocchi is considered to be constructed in the reign of Francesco Sforza (1450 - 1466), the deck serves usually as argument, that Tarocchi decks or better Trionfi decks with the structure "4x14 pip+court-cards and 22 trumps" were common before that time.
This believe has the consequence, that all apppearances of words like "Trionfi" or "ludus triumphorum" or similar in context with card decks in documents earlier than 1450-1465 are interpreted as further proves for an existence of decks with a structure 4x14+22
