Note 086
From Chapter 56 of the Decline & Fall

The narrative of Malaterra (l. iii. c. 37, p. 587, 588) is authentic, circumstantial, and fair. Dux ignem exclamans urbe incensa, etc. The Apulian softens the mischief (inde quibusdam aedibus exustis), which is again exaggerated in some partial chronicles (Muratori, Annali, tom. ix. p. 147.).
