[Fred. Chron. 71. Translated by John Michael Wallace-Hadrill. Oxford University Press. 1960 p. 60]
[…] Rothari went with his army and took from the Empire the maritime cities of Genoa, Albenga, Varigotti, Savona, Oderzo and Luni. He ravaged and destroyed them and left them in flames; and the inhabitants, stripped of their belongings, were seized and condemned to servitude. He ordered that these cities should be known only as villages in future; and he razed their walls to the ground.
