382        DE BELLIS GLACIALIB.

quo repentina suborta tempestate, & rupta glacie, quasi in abyssum dimergi videntur,
vbi paucis antea diebus instar triumphantium victorum aggredi, & ingredi
continuo credebantur.

De glacialibus excubiis, & nocturnis.

CAP. XXVI.

                                        ARCIVM, & civitatum, castrorumque obsidionem Aquilonares
                                        armati milites, tam equestres, quam pedestres, in
Noctes 20. horarum.                                         campis, vel aquis solidissima glacie rigentibus, servaturi,
                                        vigilias longissimæ noctis XX. fere horarum in medium divisæ,
Custodes castrenses mutantur in media node.                                         diligenter attendunt, atque custodes mutant, non cornibus,
                                        aut campanulis, quasi dormitare videantur personantes,
                                        sed signis secretis retentis, vt nocte aliunde accedentes
Tessera militaris.                                         ex verbo responsionis vnde, & qui sint, intelligere queant:
                                        quo verborum signo forsitan per oblivionem amisso,
Loësn. non secus acproditora Principe (si jus militare exterior debeat ) in vita, vel bonis
omnibus condemnari meretur: quod adeo rarissime evenit, vt pro portento reputandum
Proditores in caligine nocentiores. veniet, si quispiam ea negligentia inculpentur. Vigilantissimos etenim semper
oportet esse castrenses custodes, ob proditores, qui caligine periculosius nocent,
quam quoduis asperrimum frigus, quo sunt assueti, non autem proditoribus, quos
Impatientia equorum. abominantur. Sed major vis est in equorum impatientia, propter frigus, quo stridor
pedum in collisione glacierum, vnde sonus excitatur altior, continue causatur:
Exonnes vigiles. vbi fessores armatos, etiam pellibus indutos, in frigore portant, licet hi per vigiles,
Insidiæ majores in aurora cavendæ. exomnesque custodiunt commissam stationem: eoque diligentius, & cautius, quo
nox progreditur ad auroram, circa quam violentiores committi solet insidiæ, dum
humanæ vires stupore, somnoque graviore ligantur: tuncque insidiatores omnium temporum
Gedeon in aurora vicit. quasi ex constitutis articulis sunt attentiores. Quomodo vero
fortissimus Gedeon sæpius antelucano tempore tales superaverit,
e sacris historiis relinquitur manifestum.
