Note 042
From Chapter 64 of the Decline & Fall

Cantacuzene, though he relates the battle and heroic flight of the younger Androcinus (l. ii. c. 6, 7, 8), dissembles by his silence the loss of Prusa, Nice, and Nicomedia, which are fairly confessed by Nicephorus Gregoras (l. viii. 15, ix. 9, 13, xi. 6). It appears that Nice was taken by Orchan in 1330, and Nicomedia in 1339, which are somewhat different from the Turkish dates.
