Good Record-Keeping

ACTS 1:15
15 ...(the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)

That could imply there was a written list of the names of those who were present in the upper room; and if so, the author of the Book of Acts may have seen that list, and here he notes the approximate number of names in the list, as he previously noted some of the names and individuals in it (in verses 13 &14).

Or it could just mean approximately 120 had been present, written list or not.

Either way there was a good knowledge of who was present. The record of the New Testament is a reliable record.
