Procopius (de Bell. Vandal. 1. i. c. 3, p. 185 [tom. i. p. 325, ed. Bonn]) continues the history of Boniface no farther than his return to Italy. His death is mentioned by Prosper [Ann. 432] and Marcellinus; the expression of the latter, that Aetius the day before had provided himself with a longer spear, implies something like a regular duel.
