Then the sad and grim nights were spent awake by the inhabitants through fear . With the fear growing , disease and death were following the vigil . Now , even during the day , although the figure was not there , the memory of the figure was wandering in their eyes , and the fear was greater than the cause of the fear .

Then the house had been deserted and condemned to solitude , and was completely given over to that monster . Nevertheless , it was prohibited to sell the house , and it was prohibited for anyone ignorant of such evil to rent it .

A philosopher named Athenodorus comes to Athens , reads the title of the house and hears the price . Because the amount of money is suspicious , asking many questions , he is taught everything and not less , on the contrary , he ( wants to ) rent the house even more .

When night begins , Athenodorus orders a bed to be placed for him in the front part of the house , asks for a table , a pen , and a lamp , and sends all of his servants into the interior of the house . He himself stenches his mind , eyes , and hand for the purpose of writing , so that his empty mind and idle fear would not imagine the figure having been heard . In the beginning , he heard the silence of the night , then he heard the sound of iron , and the noise of chains . He did not raise his eyes , nor did he put down his pen , but strained even his ears .

Then there was more of noise , it sounds like it’s on the threshold , now like it’s within the threshold . Athenodorus glances at it , sees it , and recognizes the figure having been described to him . The ghost was standing and nodding , similar to one calling with a finger . Athenodorus motions with his hand in reply that the ghost should wait a little , and leans back over the letter and his pen .

All his cavalry being routed , Vercingetorix led back his troops in the same order as he had arranged them before the camp , and immediately began to march to Alesia , which is a town of the Mandubii , and ordered the baggage to be speedily brought forth from the camp , and follow him closely . Caesar , having conveyed his baggage to the nearest hill , and having left two legions to guard it , pursued as far as the time of day would permit , and after slaying about three thousand of the rear of the enemy , encamped at Alesia on the next day . On reconnoitering the situation of the city , finding that the enemy were panic-stricken , because the cavalry in which they placed their chief reliance , were beaten , he encouraged his men to endure the toil , and began to draw a line of circumvallation round Alesia .

The town itself was situated on the top of a hill , in a very lofty position , so that it did not appear likely to be taken , except by a regular siege . Two rivers , on two different sides , washed the foot of the hill . Before the town lay a plain of about three miles in length ; on every other side hills at a moderate distance , and of an equal degree of height , surrounded the town . The army of the Gauls had filled all the space under the wall , comprising a part of the hill which looked to the rising sun , and had drawn in front a trench and a stone wall six feet high . The circuit of that fortification , which was commenced by the Romans , comprised eleven miles . The camp was pitched in a strong position , and twenty-three redoubts were raised in it , in which sentinels were placed by day , lest any sally should be made suddenly ; and by night the same were occupied by watches and strong guards .
