Note 095
From Chapter 36 of the Decline & Fall

Si nullae a repuhlica vires, nulla praesidia, si nullae, quantum rumor est, Anthemii principis opes, statuit, et auctore, nobilitas, seu patriam dimitere seu capillos (Sidors. 1. ii. Epist. 1, p. 33).

The last words (Sirmond, Not. p. 25) may likewise denote the clerical tonsure, which was indeed the choice of Sidonius himself.
