Aeneas Tacticus 21.





21. [Cross References]

1. The provision of tools, and the methods of putting friendly territory in a state of defence and of concealing or rendering useless to the enemy things left on the land, I will not now discuss, as I have treated them at length in my Preparations for Defence. The posting of guards, rounds, sudden alarms, passwords and signals must be reserved for full treatment in the manual on Campaigning, but a few hints may be given now.





1. Περὶ δὲ ἀρμένων ἑτοιμασίας καὶ ὅσα χρὴ περὶ χώραν φιλίαν προκατασκευάζειν καὶ τὰ ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ ὡς δεῖ ἀφανίζειν ἢ ἀχρεῖα ποιεῖν τοῖς ἐναντίοις ὧδε μὲν παραλείπεται: ἐν δὲ τῷ Παρασκευαστικῷ περὶ τούτων τελείως δηλοῦται. 2. περὶ δὲ φυλάκων καταστάσεως καὶ περιοδειῶν καὶ πανείων καὶ συνθημάτων καὶ παρασυνθημάτων τὰ μὲν πολλὰ ἐν τῇ Στρατοπεδευτικῇ βίβλῳ γραπτέον ὃν τρόπον δεῖ γενέσθαι, ὀλίγα δὲ αὐτῶν καὶ νῦν δηλώσομεν.
