From Chapter 46 of the Decline & Fall

George of Pisidia, an eye-witness, (Acroas. ii. 122, etc.,) described in three acroaseis, or cantos, the first expedition of Heraclius. The poem has been lately (1777) published at Rome; but such vague and declamatory praise is far from corresponding with the sanguine hopes of Pagi, D'Anville, etc.
