"Missiles sent from this Goth were carried with much whirring and an immeasurable swiftness. Just as if they were striking some stone or else something hard and unyielding, they shattered everything with the force of the impact. So seeing some Roman armed with a breastplate, he sent a missile at him from mid-air and pierced the man through his breastplate and shield. Thus he surpassed many in might and his strong hands drew the bow." Agathias says [this].[2]
