Note 036
From Chapter 63 of the Decline & Fall

The awkward apology of Cantacuzene (l. iv. c. 39 -42), who relates, with visible confusion, his own downfall, may be supplied by the less accurate, but more honest, narratives of Matthew Villani (l. iv. c. 46, in the Script. Rerum Ital. tom. xiv. p. 268) and Ducas (c 10, 11).
