If that's a "Lacour-Gayetism," it's not the first: he also listed Neptune as a 58 when she was a 68. However, I was incorrect about Méduse being a "26." Méduse was part of Roquefeuil's fleet in 1744 and he had some 26's, but Méduse was a 16, not a 26 or a 15. So it appears that L-G again read a "6" as a "5," or his publisher's typesetter read a "6" in his handwriting as a "5" and proofreading did not catch it.
