Note 001
From Chapter 55 of the Decline & Fall

All the passages of the Byzantine history which relate to the Barbarians are compiled, methodized, and transcribed, in a Latin version, by the laborious John Gotthelf Stritter, in his "Memoriae Populorum, ad Danubium, Pontum Euxinum, Paludem Maeotidem, Caucasum, Mare Caspium, et inde Magis ad Septemtriones incolentium." Petropoli, 1771 - 1779; in four tomes, or six volumes, in 4to. But the fashion has not enhanced the price of these raw materials.
