Jornandes, about an hundred years afterwards, affirms that Aquileia was so completely ruined,
ita ut vix ejus vestigia, ut appareant, reliquerint . See Jornandes de Reb. Geticis, c. 42, p. 673. Paul. Diacon. 1. ii. c. 14, p. 785 [Grot. Hist. Goth.]. Liutprand, Hist. 1. iii. c. 2.
The name of Aquileia was sometimes applied to Forum Julii (Cividad del Friuli ), the more recent capital of the Venetian province.
