LIBER SEPTIMVS        229


De externis exemplis Finnorum.


CAP. XI.


                                        NEQVE Cæsar in bello Pompeiano sine significatione
                                        per castella fumo facta, vt erat superioris temporis consuetudo,
                                        cohortibus adductis circa ripas ( vt lib. II. & III.
                                        Commen. ipse attestatur ) processit, vbi nova orta causaCa nova bellum novum parit.
                                        novam belli mutationem fecit. Accedit præterea modus
                                        Græcorum maxime Caphareum inhabitantium, qui hyemis
                                        tempore navigare solet, vt hominibus montana juxta
                                        ripas inhabitantibus, præcipiant luminosos ignes
                                        in summitatibus montium accendere, quibus visis hostems
                                        navigantes in periculum, & mortem præcipiti casuStratagema.
rapiantur, sociique e strepitum, & clamore morientium terreantur. Aliquibus tamen
bellorum ducibus imprudens consilium videtur, quod præliaturi ab incendioIncendio bellum inchoare sperniciosissimum est.
inchoent bella, quia eo signo longinqui convocantur ad vltionem: quod vtique verissimum
est in his, qui aliena invadunt, & non in illis, qui propria tueri annituntur,
vt superiori figura monstrabatur. Sed hoc quoque eventu majorem calamitatem
recipiunt externi hostems, quam intraneis intulerunt, & plerunque prius quo fugiant
circunspiciuns, quam tela contorquent. Satellites enim hominum genus infidum, Satellitum natura.
at inquietum est, quod facilius congregari, quam dirigi potest. Viso periculo in
seditionem citius, quam ad victoriam versi, seipsos præcipitare festinant, & hoc
modico, ac inermi oblato resistente, prout Salustius refert cognitum, scilicet essePauper et inermis populus triumphat in opulentissimos reges.
pauperem gentem, quæ contra opulentissimos Reges & Principes acerrima bella
gesserit, prout de servilibus bellis toties commissis est manifestum. Parcitur tamen
villis, & oppidis sublimiori loco positis, ne comburantur, tum quia vigilantiumLocis certis parcitur.
sunt receptacula, tum etiam quia sub dominio sunt, tum itidem quia ligna afferunt
pro montanis ignibus accendendis, vt longe lateque appareant in hostilibus castris.

De bellis sylvestribus.

CAP. XII.

                                                                                SVNT etiam
                                                                                quamplurima pro
                                                                                pugnacula turn
                                                                                natura, tum arte inLoca arte & natura munita.
                                                                                sylvis, ac montibus,
                                                                                ad arcendos hostems satis
                                                                                opportuno situ
                                                                                collocata: in quorum
                                                                                accessu magis student
indigenæ properantem inimicorum exercitum opprimere, vel captivare, quam eidem
bonorum civium dispendio, & strage aperto armorum discrimine colluctari:
æquius putantes crudeles inimicos naturæ ministerio corripere, qui despecta omniNaturæ ministerio opprimuntur hostes.
lege humanitatis, more beluino, nulli sexui, ætati, aut conditioni parcentes, suriunt
& grassantur. Vnde vt incolæ eosdem hostems acrius inter sylvarum proceras arbores
