Note 031
From Chapter 43 of the Decline & Fall

Paul Warnefrid, the Lombard, records with complacency the succour, service, and honorable dismission of his countrymen -

reipublicae Romanae adversus aemulos adjutores fuerant (l. ii. c. i. p. 774, edit. Grot.) .

I am surprised that Alboin, their martial king, did not lead his subjects in person.
