376        DE BELLIS GLACIALIB.

ipso gurgite liquefacta glacie firmiter permanere, additis lembis, seu lyntribus, alioque
navigiorum genere, quo peritissimi sagittarii rates hujusmodi valeant defensare,
Vigiliæ nocturnæ. & nocturnas vigilias, ne quisquam obsessorum evadant, diligenter observare.
Idemque faciunt campestribus propugnaculis vbique præsidentes. Pari enim atrocitate
persequuntur obsessos, quorum impia crudelitate ad tantum vindictæ ardorem diutius
Varia obsessorum miseria. fuerant provocati. Quo fit, vt pro majori parte tam duris custodiis constricti,
sæpe imaginantur an gladio, an laqueo, an aqua, an igne, an præcipitio, an veneno,
an mutuo jugulo seipsos occidant, exemplo Romanorum, quos L. Florus
secundo bello Punico vrgente Hannibale his verbis commemorat periisse: Interim

De vehiculis igniferis.

CAP. XIX.

Hostes Aquilonarium incolarum.                                         CVM Gothis, ac Sueonibus glacialis pugnam per equestres,
                                        vel pedestres turmas a Moschovitis, Danis, Germanis, vel
                                        internis hostibus intentantur, iidenique hostes diutius ad vim
                                        inferendam suas munitiones in faucibus montium, vel vallium
                                        collocare disponunt, vnde irruptiones faciant in regnicolas,
                                        qui pro sui defensione simili proposito in armis
                                        congregati, ne eisdem hostibus tantillulum digrassandi spatium
Vehicula ignifera.                                         temporis, vel locum concedant, ingeniis & viribus
                                        vtuntur opportunis: tunc vehicula oblonga aridis sarmentis,
Equi sylvestres & indomiti. & cæteris combustibilibus materiis replent, vt aterrimum fumum, intolerabilemque
fœtorem igne ( directorum audacia ) accenso, attractuque equorum sylvestrium,
& furiosorum inimicis opponant: idque celerius committitur, quo collateraliter
equi ligati ardore ignis retropositi stimulantur ad cursum, nec currere desinunt,
donec hostilem aciem turbaverint, vt vel eo loco, vel alibi a latere armatis incolis
Fuga simulata. impetuosissime insultantibus cedant, vel eosdem fugam simulantes, quasi certi victores
insequantur, vt sic educti, dispersique potius secretis glacierum voragimbus,
