Note 059
From Chapter 56 of the Decline & Fall

In the first expedition of Robert against the Greeks, I follow Anna Comnena, (the ist, iiid, ivth, and vth books of the Alexiad,) William Appulus, (l. ivth and vth, p. 270-275,) and Jeffrey Malaterra, (l. iii. c. 13, 14, 24 - 29, 39.) Their information is contemporary and authentic, but none of them were eye-witnesses of the war.
