sagittas vero breres: his pro ferro lapides acuti præfixi sunt. Hastas prieterea habent, his præfira sunt cornua cervorum: habent etiam clavas nodosas. Corporis dimidium, in pugnam prodeuntes, creta dealbatum habent, dimidium minio pictum. Alii caput tectum habent pelle equina, de capite equi detracta, cum auribus et juba. Pro scutis gruum pellibus corpora tegunt.
