Let us invite my son Octa to come here, and his younger brother Ebissa, both of them distinguished warriors. Give them the lands which are in the northern parts of Britain, near to the Wall between Deira and Scotland. There they will withstand the onslaught of the barbarians, so that you yourself can live peacefully on this side of the Humber.
Vortigern did what Hengist said and told the Saxons to invite anyone who they considered was strong enough to help him. Messengers set off. Octa and Ebissa arrived, and a man called Cherdic, too, with three hundred boats filled with a fully-equipped army.Vortigern received them all kindlily and rewarded them with lavish gifts. With their support he conquered his enemies and was victorious in every battle.
