Note 089
From Chapter 60 of the Decline & Fall

Villehardouin, No. 133 - 135. Instead of 400,000, there is a various reading of 500,000. The Venetians had offered to take the whole booty, and to give 400 marks to each knight, 200 to each priest and horseman, and 100 to each foot-soldier: they would have been great losers (Le Beau, Hist. du. Bas Empire tom. xx. p. 506. I know not from whence).
