XVIIII. Praeterea partem muri, ad quam machina conatur accedere, caemento atque lapidibus uel luto siue lateribus, postremo tabulatis extruendo faciunt altiorem, ne defensores moenium desuper urbi uentura possit obprimere. Constat autem inefficax machinamentum reddi, si inueniatur inferius. Verum obsidentes eiusmodi dolum adhibere consueuerunt. Primo talem extruunt turrem, quae propugnaculis ciuitatis uideatur inferior; deinde secreto aliam de tabulatis intrinsecus turriculam faciunt et, cum muris fuerit machina sociata, subito funibus trochleisque de medio turricula illa producitur, de qua egredientes armati, quia altior inuenitur, statim capiunt ciuitatem.
