      " The first man that dwelt in Europe was Alanus, with his three sons,
      Hisicion, Armenon, and Neugio. Hisicion had four sons, Francus,
      Romanus, Alamanus, and Bruttus. Armenon had five sons, Gothus,
      Valagothus, Cibidus, Burgundus, and Longobardus. Neugio had three
      sons, Vandalus, Saxo, and Boganus. From Hisicion arose four
      nations__the Franks, the Latins, the Germans, and Britons: from
      Armenon, the Gothi, Valagothi, Cibidi, Burgundi, and Longobardi:: from
      Neugio, the Bogari, Vandali, Saxones, and Tarincgi. The whole of
      Europe was subdivided into these tribes."
      Now is Alanus a Gothic version of Mannus?
