* two trumpets.
The necessity of such instruments will at once appear, when
the amazing extent of this army is considered. There were
various kinds of trumpets among the ancients, of different
forms and materials, as Eustathius shews on Homer, where he
mentions six; the second of which was [stroggule,] turned
up round, like a ram's horn; which he says the Egyptians used
(from being invented by Osiris) when they assembled the
people to their sacrifices. But in opposition to that form,
Moses commands these to be made long, in the shape of those
used at present. So Josephus informs us, who says they were
near a cubit long; the tube of the thickness of a common pipe
or flute; the mouth no wider than just to admit blowing into
them; and their ends wide like those of a modern trumpet.
