Note 043
From Chapter 41 of the Decline & Fall

See the African government and warfare of Solomon in Procopius (Vandal. l ii. C. 10, 11, 12, 13, 19, 20). He was recalled and again restored; and his last victory dates in the thirteenth year of Justinian (A.D. 539). An accident in his childhood had rendered him an eunuch (1. i. c. II): the other Roman generals were amply furnished with beards, Ancient Greek (1. ii c. 8).
