11. Goths, who were in Rome and its surroundings, before already very calm Teodata amazed that despite the proximity of the enemy, he does not want to join with him in battle; They had a strong suspicion that he deliberately  wants to bring the matter ready to Emperor Justinian, and that he only cares about how he could live quietly, gathering more wealth possible. When they realized the news that Naples is taken, they openly rebuking him in all of this, gathered in the town, spaced at a distance from Rome, two hundred and eighty stages, which the Romans called Regatta; it seemed to them that there is best to camp, because there was a large plain to feed the horses. Here flowed, and the river that locals in Latin called Detsennovium ( "devyatnadtsatimilny"), as she passed in its current nineteen miles, which is one hundred and thirteen stages, flows into the sea near the town of Terracina, next to which is a mountain of Circe; here, they say, Odysseus lived with Circe. In my opinion, these stories are wrong, as Homer says that Circe's house was on the island. But I must say that this mountain is Circe, going far out to sea, it is very similar to the island, and for those who are sailing very close to the beach or go on foot on it, from a distance it seems the island. When someone goes to the mountain, then he realizes that he was wrong and that he was deceived first impression. That is why, of course, Homer could call this place the island. I return now to the interrupted story.
