From Chapter 19 of the Decline & Fall

For the description of Amida, see d'Herbelot, Bibliotheque Orientale, p. 108; Histoire de Timur Bec, par Cherefeddin Ali, 1. iii- c. 41. Ahmed Arabsiades, tom. i. p. 331, c. 43; Voyages de Tavernier, tom. i. p. 301; Voyages d'Otter, tom. ii. p. 273; and Voyages de Niebuhr, tom. ii p. 324-328. The last of these travellers, a learned and accurate Dane, has given a plan of Amida, which illustrates the operations of the siege.
