Description

Excerpt from Rutilii Claudii Namatiani De Reditu Suo Libri Duo: The Home-Coming of Rutilius Claudius Namatianus From Rome to Gaul in the Year 416 A. D

Under the weak and ineffective rule of Honorius, who succeeded to the Empire of the West on the death of his father, the great Theodosius, in 895, and continued his inglorious reign - residing first at Milan and after 403 at Ravenna - until the year of his death, 423, Italy suffered severely from the inroads of the barbarians, especially from the invasions led by Radagaisus, King of the Ostrogoths,l and by Alaric, King of the Visigoths. The Vandal Stilicho, indeed, the commander-in-chief of the army of Honorius, while he lived succeeded in curbing the barbarians, defeating Alaric at Pollentia (where now stands the little village of Pollenzo with ruins of its ancient Roman theatre and amphitheatre) on Easter Day.
