De crudelita e cujusdam Ceti.


CAP. XI.


                                        CVM Procopius lib. III. belli Gothorum plurima de
Totilas.                                         Totila, ac armis, & stragibus suo tempore in Italia perpetratis
                                        commemorat, volui etiam huic proposito hoc
                                        memorabile portentum accommodare: quod eadem tempestate,
                                        hybernoque tempore, cum Byzantii, tum & in
Terræmotus crebriores fiunt.                                         aliis locis terræmotus facti, asperiores quidam & maximi,
                                        noctuque omnes, atque aded, vt qui ea incolerent loca,
                                        ruinis iam iam suspicati oporessum se iri, ingenti formidine
                                        tenerentur, cum alias nullo affecti sint malo: tunc
Nilus præter solitum excrescit. item & fluvius. Nilus vltra XVIII. cubitos supra alveum ipsum ita elatus excrevit,
vt sua inundatione præter solitum vniversam irrigarit Aegyptum, quod
nullo anteriori seculo accidisset. Ideoque hominibus stuporem, & animalibus exitium
Cetus quidam capitur. intulit admirandum. Per id tempus etiam cetus quidam marinus piscis(quem Porphyrium
Byzantini vocant ) mirificem capitur. Hic sane circa annum iam quinquagesimum,
vt Byzantinis ipsis, ita & finitimorum locorum tunc incolis infestior fuerat,
Cetus navigia ad imum deprimit. non continenter, sed per temporis intervalla. Nam & navigia pleraque ad
ima depresserat, multarumque navium vectores ac nautas turbando, &
vim inferendo longius disturbarat: cujus beluæ capiendæ magnum
Iustinian’ Imp. Istiniano Imperatori studium fuit: peragere tamen,
quod ei animo inerat, nulla hic potuit arte. Sed
quemadmodum in capturam hæc belua
venerit, paucis ostendetur.
