Note 048
From Chapter 34 of the Decline & Fall

The curious narrative of this embassy, which required few observations, and was not susceptible of any collateral evidence, may be found in Priscus, tp. 49-70 [ed. Par.; p. 170-209, ed. Bonn]. But I have not confined myself to the same order; and I .had previously extracted the historical circumstances, which were less intimately connected with the journey and business of the Roman ambassadors.
