Note 071
From Chapter 30 of the Decline & Fall

Zosimus (1. v. [c. 26] p. 331) transports the war and the victory of Stilicho beyond the Danube. A strange error, which is awkwardly and imperfectly cured by reading
Ancient Greek for Ancient Greek (Tillemont, Hist. des Emp. tom. v. p. 807).
In good policy, we must use the service of Zosimus, without esteeming or trusting him.
