Note 025
From Chapter 36 of the Decline & Fall

Luxuriose agere volens a senatoribus projectus est, is the concise expression of Gregory of Tours (1. ii. c. xi. in tom. ii. p. 168). An old Chronicle (in tom. ii. p. 649) mentions an indecent jest of Avitus, which seems more applicable to Rome than to Treves.
