De Græco ingenio conficiendi panes.


CAP. XLII.


Avaritia perfidia præfectorum noxia.                                         QVANTVM stupida ignavia, ac detestabilis avaritia
                                        perfidorum præfectorum obesse solent Principibus, arina præcipue
                                        tractantibus in campestri, sive classica expeditione, inter
                                        alia celebris autor Procopius lib. III. Vandalici belli demonstrat.
                                        Refert enim Belisarium Iustiniani potentem præfectum,
Belisarius.                                         dum venti non flarent, bellicam jussisse classem in
                                        anchoris persistere salvam, vt milites interea plures conscriberet,
                                        novoque ordine collocaret, ac reliquos duces ornaret.

Panes resoluuntur in farinam. Postquam vero classis apud Methonem fuit, panes soluti omnes rursus in farinam
