Praetorianis sportulas. . ,"13 Of course, Sidonius is exaggerating the degeneracy of his enemies. These men surely would be the last to weaken their positions by neglecting their military retainers and bodyguards. The sportulae which were due the bodyguards (whom Sidonius pedantically calls praetoriani) may be compared to the buccellata from which the buccettarii got their name. A more prosaic writer might have used a term like sportularii to describe these guards because they were provided with sportulae.
Who directed certain royal estates for the breeding and raising of horses near Treves. Sigivald, whom Theuderic provided with land in return for his garrisoning the Auvergne after the revolt of 531, had an armed following with which he plundered the area he was required to protect. Gallo-Romans, as noted above, also had personal armed retainers, which they employed to gain various ends. For example, Syagrius, a member of the famous noble family which flourished in Gaul during the late empire and early Middle Ages, used his retainers to help him liquidate his enemy Syrivald, the son of Sigivald.
Arigisel's mission represents the second time, so far as can be ascertained, that Theuderic delegated command to someone other than his son. The first to have been so distinguished was Sigivald, who had been given a command in Auvergne. In contrast to the weakness of Theuderic's Prankish followers in siege warfare, the forces from the south of Gaul led by his son Theudebert and his brothers Chlotar and Childebert were considerably more effective in siege operations. This may be attributed to the fact that they recruited their troops from the more Romanized parts of Gaul.
