Note 003
From Chapter 7 of the Decline & Fall

Hist. August. p. 140. Herodian, 1. vi. p. 223. Aurelius Victor. By comparing these authors, it should seem, that Maximin had the particular command of the Triballian horse, with the general commission of disciplining the recruits of the whole army. His biographer ought to have markcd, with more care, his exploits, and the successive steps of his military promotions.
