Note 129
From Chapter 26 of the Decline & Fall

Compare Jornandes (c. 21, 28), who marks the condition and number of the Gothic Foerderati, with Zosimus (1. iv. p. 258), who mentions their golden collars; and Pacatus (in Panigyr. Vet. xii. 37), who applauds, with false or foolish joy, their bravery and discipline.
