XX. Interdum longissimas ferratasque trabes obponunt machinae uenienti eamque a muri uicinitate propellunt. Sed cum Rhodiorum ciuitas obpugnaretur ab hostibus et turris ambulatoria supra murorum altitudinem ac turrium omnium pararetur, mechanici ingenio inuentum est tale remedium. Per noctem sub fundamenta muri cuniculum fodit et illum locum, ad quem die postero turris fuerat promouenda, nullo hostium sentiente egesta terra cauauit intrinsecus, et, cum rotis suis moles fuisset inpulsa atque ad locum, qui subtercauatus fuerat, peruenisset, tanto ponderi solo cedente subsedit nec iungi muris aut moueri ulterius potuit. Ita ciuitas liberata est et machina derelicta.
