XIIII. De materia ac tabulatis testudo contexitur, quae, ne exuratur incendio, coriis uel ciliciis centonibusque uestitur. Haec intrinsecus accipit trabem, quae aut adunco praefigitur ferro et falx uocatur ab eo, quod incurua est, ut de muro extrahat lapides, aut certe caput ipsius uestitur ferro et appellatur aries, uel quod habet durissimam frontem, qua subruit muros, uel quod more arietum retrocedit, ut cum impetu uehementius feriat. Testudo autem a similitudine uerae testudinis uocabulum sumpsit, quia, sicut illa modo reducit modo proserit caput, ita machinamentum interdum reducit trabem intedum exerit, ut fortius caedat.
