LIBER QVINTVS        197

                                        Odenato, multorum gravi sententia fuisse fortiorem,
                                        mulierem omnium Orientalium fœminarum nobilissimam,

De bellis illustrium mulierum.


CAP. XXX.

                                        NON est admirationi, aut ineredulitati leviter tribuendum,
                                        Gothicas præsertim mulieres olim maxima gessisse bella, Fœminæ a cunabulis in armis educatæ.
                                        dum ab ipsis cunabulis moribus severis, & militaribus
                                        disciplinis educabantur, atque virtutis nervos non luxuria,
                                        turpitudjne, aut petulantia, sed armorum exercitiis, quasi
                                        singulo momento instrui permitterentur: vt delicatum vivendi
                                        genus adhorrentes, corpus, animumque patientia,
                                        ac labore durare valerent, totamque fœmineæ levitatis mollitiem
                                        abiicere, atque muliebre ingenium in virilem sævititiamSigna ferocitatis et agilitatis.
commutare: præcipue quarum ingenii vgor, aut corporum agilitas majoribus
signis spectatior apparebat. Hæ siquidem perinde ac nativæ conditionis immemores
