Thank you.

Wiki has more information on Anderson's Constitutions (scroll down. As mentioned, there are various versions online).

On page 6 of the 1738 edition (1976 facsimile edition) appears a reference to Diodorus, Bk 1.

However, 18th century footnote conventions were evidently not as clear as those today. There are three asterisks on the page, each indicating a reference. In this case, it is the second that refers to Diodorus:
Quote

... for antient History informs us * of the early fine Taste of the Egyptians ... (* Diod. Sicul. lib. 1)
(No other detail is given for this Diodorus citation).

Below is a third footnote, in connection with the Great Pyramid:
Quote

Some say it was built of Marble Stones brought from the Quarries of Arabia; for there is no vestige of a quarry near it. Others call them artificial Stones made on the Spot, most of them 30 Foot long ...
There is no citation, other than 'Some say,' for the 'artificial Stones made on the Spot' statement.

(A similar, though not identical, version of the 1738 page 6 footnote, although minus the 'artificial stones' reference, appears here, in the footnote on pg 10. There, the 'stones 30 Foot long' description refers only to 'Marble Stones, brought a vast way from the Quarries of Arabia'. The description of these stone as 'artificial' does not appear until the 1738 edition).
