Note 036
From Chapter 34 of the Decline & Fall

The articles of the treaty, expressed without much order or precision, may be found in Priscus (p. 34, 35, 36, 37, 53, ete. [ed. Par.; p. 142-148, 178, etc., ed. Bonn]). Count Marcellinus dispenses some comfort by observing- 1. that Attila himself solicited the peace and presents which he had formerly refused; and, 2. That, about the same time, the ambassadors of India presented a fine large tame tiger to the emperor Theodosius.
