XVI. Ad lapides uero uel manibus uel fundis iaciendos exerceri diligenter conuenit iuniores. Fundarum usum primi Balearium insularum habitatores et inuenisse et ita perite exercuisse dicuntur, ut matres paruos filios nullum cibum contingere sinerent, nisi quem ex funda destinato lapide percussissent. Saepe enim aduersum bellatores cassidibus catafractis (loricis) que munitos teretes lapides de funda uel fustibalo destinati sagittis sunt omnibus grauiores, cum membris integris letale tamen uulnus importent et sine inuidia sanguinis hostis lapidis ictu intereat. In omnibus autem ueterum proeliis funditores militasse nullus ignorat. Quae res ideo ab uniuersis tironibus frequenti exercitio discenda est, quia fundam portare nullus est labor. Et interdum euenit, ut in lapidosis locis conflictus habeatur, ut mons sit aliquis defendendus aut collis, ut ab obpugnatione castellorum siue ciuitatum lapidibus barbari fundisque pellendi sint.
