Sed hoc petentem ante tribunal Italici milites trucidarunt. Hic exitus perfidiae fuit Ruffini. Post Ruffini mortem et alius dux Gotticus et Arianus nominations Caianus, seditionem adversus Arcadium movit, in qua manifestis miraculis Deus ostendit se urbem Constantinopolin et Arcadium protexisse. ..
