„To abandon your shield is the basest of crimes“

—  Tacitus, buch Germania

Original: (la) Scutum reliquisse praecipuum flagitium, nec aut sacris adesse aut concilium inire ignominioso fas; multique superstites bellorum infamiam laqueo finierunt.
Quelle: Germania (98), Chapter 6
Kontext: To abandon your shield is the basest of crimes; nor may a man thus disgraced be present at the sacred rites, or enter their council; many, indeed, after escaping from battle, have ended their infamy with the halter.
