Audebant se quondam fratres Latio dicere. Cf. p. 222, note 42. 1, and Lncan, Phars. i. 427: Arvtmiqut mat Latio sefingere fratres Sanguine ad Waco populi, 3. The people of Auvergne bad successfully sustained a siege of the Visigoths, who drew off into winter quarters. 4. Seep. 221, note 34. 1. 111. 1. The phrase is bitterly ironical. Cf. Introduction, p. xliii. 2. It seems best to take this in a general sense. For other explanations with a more specific reference, cf. Gregoire and Collombet, ii, pp. 257 ff.- Sirmond, Notes, p. 75.

The neighbours are the Visigoths, the protectors the Burgundians. Cf. Introduction, p. xxxvi. 126. 1. Antistes. This word usually signifies a bishop- but the terms of the present letter hardly suggest that dignity for Himerius. Claudianus Mamertus, a simple priest, is elsewhere described as antistes ordine in secundo (IV. xi)- it seems probable that the word should also be understood of the second order in the present place, and that Himerius had not attained episcopal rank. (See Gregoire and Collombet, ii. 269-70.) In this case the words dignitatis auctorem would imply that he was ordained by Lupus. Cf. IX. ix. 6, where ...
