Note 110
From Chapter 56 of the Decline & Fall

To this imperfect capture and speedy rescue I apply the Ancient Greek of Cinnamus, l. ii. c. 19, p. 49. Muratori, on tolerable evidence (Annali d'Italia, tom. ix. p. 420, 421), laughs at the delicacy of the French, who maintain,

marisque nullo impediente periculo ad regnum proprium reversum esse;

yet I observe that their advocate, Ducange, is less positive as the commentator on Cinnamus, than as the editor of Joinville.
