XXIIII. Aliud genus obpugnationum est subterraneum atque secretum, quod cuniculum uocant a leporibus, qui cauernas sub terris fodiunt ibique conduntur. Adhibita ergo multitudine ad speciem metallorum, in quibus auri argentique uenas Bessorum rimatur industria, magno labore terra defoditur cauatoque specu in exitium ciuitatis inferna quaeritur uia. Quae fraus duplicibus operatur insidiis. Aut enim penetrant urbem et noctu non sentientibus oppidanis egrediuntur per cuniculum reseratisque portis suorum agmen inducunt hostesque in ipsis domibus perimunt ignorantes aut certe, cum ad murorum fundamenta peruenerint, suffodiunt eorum maximam partem adpositis siccioribus lignis ruinamque muri tumultuario opere suspendunt; sarmenta insuper iungunt aliaque fomenta flammarum; tunc praeparatis bellatoribus operi ignis inmittitur conbustisque columnis ligneis atque tabulatis muro subito corruente inruptioni aditus reseratur.
