Note 125
From Chapter 26 of the Decline & Fall

I am justified, by reason and example, in applying this Indian name to the Ancient Greek of the barbarians, the single trees hollowed into the shape of a boat, Ancient Greek Zosimus, 1. iv. [c. 38] p. 253.

Ausi Danubium quondam tranare Gruthungi
In lintres fregere nemus: ter mille ruebant
Per fluvium plenae cuneis immanibus alni. Claudian, in iv. Cons. Hon. 623.
