Adhuc de eorundem armis, & munimentis.


CAP. XIIII.

                                        VTVNTVR & iidem Finni pro corporum munitione,
                                        partim thoracibus e corio phocarum calce macerato, partimThoraces coriacei.
                                        corio alcium jubato: quod superfusa aqua (si hyeme
                                        bellandum sit ) congelari permittunt, nec glacies piles forinsecus
                                        adherens, sudoribus portantis a concepta duritia
                                        relaxatur. Galeis quidam eorum instar squamarum pisciumGaleæ diversarum formarum.
                                        ex vngulis alcium, sive rangiferorum (de quibus inferius
                                        lib. de animalibus plura dicentur ) aut boum ingeniose
                                        connexis vtuntur: quidam vero certarum volucrum
exuviis intrinlecus filis ferreis diligenter contextis: quidam coriariis galeis e spissa,
humidaque cute calce decocta, super ligno ad formam capitis contracta, eaque aëre
sensim siccata, tutissime muniunt caput. Verum galeas hujusmodi, ne capite incalescenteModus conficiendi galeas.
flaccescant, subtili cortice arboris populeæ intus piscium visco (qui liquoribus
resistit confirmant. In simili etiam casu refert Herodotus lib. VII. vni e supremisViscus piscium liquoribus resistit.
præfectis, seu ducibus Xerxis Persarum Regis accidisse. Ait enim: Tertius
horum collega Pharnuches, Sardibus erat relictus ægrotus: nam cum Sardibus proficiceretur,
in calamitatem incidit insciens: equitante enim eo, canis sub pedes equiEquus elevatus domini occidit.
intercurrit: quo equus improviso deterritus, atque erectum sese attolleris, Pharnuchem
excussit. Hic collapsus sanguinem evomuit, nactusque morbum, qui in
phthisim evasit. Equo autem a casu statim domini, fecerunt famuli, vt ille jusserat. Phthisis.
Abducto nanque in eum locum, vbi dominum straverat, crura cum genibus
absciderunt. Nec omittendum est hoc passum, quod Regem
Armeniæ Tiridatem ( de quo Iosephus lib.
VII. belli Iudaici cap. XLII)supradicto
artificio prope captum, Rex reti capitur.
quidam misso laqueo
circundatum tracturus fuerat, nisi celeriter gladio
rupisset laqueum, atque ita
fugisset.
