Appian says about the Kelts: "[those] whom he exhibited naked to the Romans. These are the men who send out the great shout against you in battles and beat their weapons and raise long swords and hair: seeing their cowardice and their soft and weak body you go eagerly to the task."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἱέντες: ἀφιέντες. Ἀππιανὸς περὶ τῶν Κελτῶν φησιν: οὓς γυμνοὺς ἐπεδείκνυε Ῥωμαίοις. οὗτοί εἰσιν οἱ τὴν βοὴν τὴν βαρεῖαν ἱέντες ὑμῖν ἐν ταῖς μάχαις καὶ τὰ ὅπλα παταγοῦντες καὶ ξίφη μακρὰ καὶ κόμας αἰωροῦντες, ὧν τὸ ἄτολμον ὁρῶντες καὶ τὸ σῶμα μαλακὸν καὶ ἄτονον προσίετε τῷ ἔργῳ.
Notes:
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica; see the references at Photius iota41 Theodoridis. The headword -- present active participle of ἵημι (cf. iota 215, iota 216), masculine nominative plural -- is taken to be quoted from Homer, Iliad 2.774; see the scholia there.
[2] Appian, Celtica 8. (The "he" is unidentifiable.)
