The Life Of The Blessed Emperor Constantine -Eusebius Pamphilus

THE van, however, of the enemy, unable to resist the emperor’s first assault, threw down their arms, and prostrated themselves at his feet. All these experienced his clemency, and he joyfully embraced the opportunity of sparing human life. But there were others who still continued in arms, and prepared to hazard the event of a battle. Against these the emperor, after vainly endeavouring to conciliate them by friendly overtures, ordered his army to commence the attack. On this they immediately turned and betook themselves to flight; and some were overtaken and slain according to the laws of war, while others fell on each other in the confusion of their flight, and perished by the swords of their comrades.
