XXIIII. Castrorum autem diuersa triplexque munitio est. Nam si nimia necessitas non premit, caespites circumciduntur e terra et ex his uelut murus instruitur, altus tribus pedibus supra terram, ita ut in ante sit fossa, de qua leuati sunt caespites; deinde tumultuaria fossa fit lata pedes nouem et alta pedes VII. Sed ubi uis acrior inminet hostium, tunc legitima fossa ambitum conuenit munire castrorum, ita ut XII pedes lata sit et alta sub linea, sicut appellant, pedes nouem. Supra autem saepibus hinc inde factis, quae de fossa leuata fuerit, terra congeritur et crescit in altum IIII pedes. Sic fit, ut sit XIII alta et XII lata; supra quam sudes de lignis fortissimis, quas milites portare consueuerunt, praefiguntur. Ad quod opus ligones rastra qualos aliaque utensilium genera habere conuenit semper in promptu.
