Now when the rearguard, so advancing, hadreached a ravine which they must cross in order to strike up thesteep, at that instant the barbarians began rolling down greatboulders, each a wagon load[1], some larger, some smaller; against therocks they crashed and splintered flying like slingstones in everydirection--so that it was absolutely out of the question even toapproach the entrance of the pass.
