Note 019
From Chapter 35 of the Decline & Fall

See an original picture of the figure, dress, arms, and temper of the ancient Franks, in Sidonius Apollinaris (Panegyr., Majorian. 238-254); and such pictures, though coarsely drawn, have a real and intrinsic value. Father Daniel (Hist. de la Milice Francoise, tom. i. p. 2-7) has illustrated the description.
