Note 027
From Chapter 61 of the Decline & Fall

The truth of geography, and the original text of Villehardouin (No. 194), place Rodosto three days' journey (trois jornees) from Adrianople: but Vigenere, in his version, has most absurdly substituted trois heures; and this error, which is not corrected by Ducange, has entrapped several moderns, whose names I shall spare.
