    註:格伯簋又名倗生簋,據《攈古錄金文》,乃「青州所出」西周中期之青銅器。此器傳世共四件,分別藏於故宮博物院、中國國家博物館、上海博物館,另一件下落不明。其中,僅上海博物館器蓋皆全。該簋內底有銘文九行八十三字:「唯正月初吉癸巳,王在成周。格伯爰良馬乘於倗生,厥貯三十田,則析。格伯☐殹妊☐☐,厥從格伯☐☐甸殷,厥幼零谷杜木☐谷☐菜,涉東門。厥書史戠武立盥成壨。鑄保簋,用典格伯田。其萬年子子孫孫永保用。☐」

    徐珂編撰《清稗類鈔》之〈阮文達家廟藏器〉載:「阮文達家廟藏器,有周虢叔大(上林下令)鍾、格伯簋、寰盤、漢雙魚洗,皆無恙,惟全形椎拓不易,因而真蹟甚稀。況夔笙求之經年,僅獲一本。復本所見非一,石刻較優於木,然真贗相形,神味霄壤,可意會不可言傳,不僅在花紋字畫間也......真器拓本,悉出阮氏先後羣從之手,墨色濃淡不勻,字口微漫,不能甚精。」
