"Brunn, Gumpoldskirchen, Guntramsdorf, Inzersdorf, Arsenal in Wien, Kroisbach bei Oedenburg" [Brunn am Gebirge, Gumpoldskirchen, Guntramsdorf, Inzersdorf and Arsenal in Vienna (Austria), Fertőrákos (Hungary)].


Hörnes attributed the authority to Partsch, apparently based on an "in schedis" determination.
