Note 037
From Chapter 33 of the Decline & Fall

The picture of Carthage, as it flourished in the fourth and fifth centuries, is taken from the Expositio totius Mundi, p. 17, 18, in the third volume of Hudson's Minor Geographers; from Ausonius de Claris Urbibus, p. 228, 229; and principally from Salvian, de Gubernatione Dei, 1. vii. p. 257, 258. I am surprised that the 'Notitia' should not place either a mint or an arsenal at Carthage, but only a gynecaeum, or female manufacture.
