(Chapter 39) Footnote 54:

A marginal note refers to book 1 of De anatomicis administrationibus, where see 2.221.13-222.2: “... we saw the skeleton of a brigand ... killed by some traveller repelling his attack. The inhabitants would not bury him, glad enough to see his body consumed by the birds which, in a couple of days, ate his flesh, leaving his skeleton as if for demonstration.” (tr. Singer 1956, p. 3).
