De scalis super aquas in obsidione levandis.


CAP. XXXIII.

                                        LICET titulus cum sua imaginc videatur magnam in se
                                        præmittere declarationem, tamen vt appareat explanatior,
                                        nonnihil adhuc videbitur superanddendum. Solent Septentrionales
                                        pugnatores, præcipue Sueones & Gothi, in stagnalibus
                                        fossis, aquis, aut amnibus, quietiori silentio circa
                                        arces, & mœnia labentibus, rates, seu tabulas super
                                        longas abietinas trabes componere, scalasque certis adhibitisScalæ ratibus inhærentes.
                                        funibus, et ferreis rotulis instarchalybeorum arcuum, furtivo
                                        quasi tractu in densis tenebris, & pluribus locis declivioribus
erigere, atque bona opportunitate silenter, & celerrime defensore vllo non attendente,
vel dormitante, ascendere, ac in tanto numero citissime se conjungere, vt sociisAscensores scalarum.
hincinde simili industria scalatim mœnia ascedentibus, & concurrentibus, in obvios
quosque faciant irruptionem, quatenus portas violenter aperiant, & teneant, donec
omnis exercitus, vel robustior eius pars, impetu stringente valeat introire. EtModus invadendi arces.
licet præsumptuoso magis quam provido ausu idipsum impune quandoque fecerant,
faciuntque eadem servata temeritate: tamen plerunque saltuntur in accessione portarum,
dum super easdem e sublimiori loco simplex, vel gemina dependet ferrata, vel ferreaCrates ferrea super portas dependens.
crates, vt hæc, vel illa facilime ad casum soluta, præsumptuosos portarum perfractores
pro parte, vel toto comminuat, aut interimendos manifesto ludibrio vulneribus
laceratos excludat. Similiter & fieri solet in ascendentibus mœnia tabulata, Mœnia tabulata.
vt cum credant se ( somnum simulante custodia ) positos in tuta statione, ruptis
infernis tenaculis, vigilum diligentia vno impetu decidunt interituri.
Eoque casu cum sese reprimarit a præmeditato insultum, sagittis
post tergum emissis vel occiduntur, vel laceri, vulneratique
in castra difficilime relabuntur.
