Caesar having taken a view of the country, decamped as soon as it was light, taking a considerable circuit and observing no particular route; for the direct way to the Iberus and Octogesa lay in the rear of the enemy's camp. He was therefore obliged to march through valleys and precipices, and over steep rocks, which the soldiers could not climb, but by disencumbering themselves of their arms, and returning them afterwards to one I another. But not a man murmured at these difficulties, in hopes of seeing a speedy end of all their labours, if they could but gain the Iberus before the enemy, and intercept their provisions.
