234        DE BELLICIS INSTRV.


pluerent rusticorum, quos omnes quasi locustas vno momento excutere vellent, &
possent, inanibus verbis insultantes. Sed re ipsa compertum est illico, verba & minas
nil valere, dum appropinquarent qui verbera, & mortem inferre valebant.
Viso etenim impetum in meridie diei Pentecostes ipsorum Montanorum, seu Dalacarlorum,
mille injuriis vna cum reliquis regnicolis ad iracundiam provocatorum,
non solum non attentatam pugnam validissimo milite equestri & pedestri, contra
multitudinem institutam sustinere nequiverunt, sed turbatissimo metu in propugnacula
vitam defensuri, sese velocissima fuga receperunt: in quibus, vt dictum est,
sagittis ignitis, & ferro crustato interimebantur.

De veltis centurionum.

CAP. XVII.

                                        QVAMVIS tumultuaria manus, & inermis ruricolarum
                                        turba, vbique per oibem militaris discipline nullam credatur
                                        habere peritiam: tamen longe severior ratio deprehenditur
Septentrionales fortiter & audacter pugnant.                                         in Septentrionalibus populis, qui comportatis expensis certi
                                        temporis, & armis, alacriter ad res bellicas æque vt ad
                                        tnpudia congrediuntur, Validissimi enim sunt, præsertim
                                        Sueci & Gothi, in arciLus, fortalitiis, oppidis, ac vrbibus
                                        obsidendis, & impugnandis: idque multiplici modo,
                                        prout hoc libro variis capitulis inferius ostendetur. Hic tamen
modus superiori figura depictus, cæteris forte periculosior existimatur. Incolæ
Tyranos incolæ fugant. enim gravissima lacessiti injuria, & tyrannide, vt ea liberentur, in vnum collecti,
crudelibus præfectis celeriter amovendis subito congredi non formidant: vnde &
eos superatos, atque ad arces & oppida confugere coactos, mox agminatim arcibus
Præfecti obsidione cingunt. inclusos obsidione cingunt, conjunctisque viribus & animis, arbusta seu sarmenta
colligunt, & hæc virentibus juniperis vbique crescentibus, cum pice, corticeque arboris
betulinæ ingenioso compendio restibus constringunt: idque adeo immani altitudine,
& magnitudine instar longarum turrium efficiunt, vt vnamquanque congeriem
( quam Veltam vocant ) antrorsum movendo, circiter viri centum voluant aut plures,
Velta. prout immensitas hujuscemodi veltarum requirit: quæ etiam velta talem securitatem
