Apparently the Lombards and Avars took a more tolerant approach, Rubini said, because this man, who died around age 50, was buried in the cemetery along with the other dead.
Tolerant Lombards. Sure, that makes perfect sense.
"The Avar society was very inflexible militarily, and in particular situations all are called to contribute to the cause of survival, healthy and sick," Rubini said. "Probably this individual was really a leper warrior who died in combat to defend his people against the Byzantinian soldiers."
Absolute hooey. More likely, the leper was killed by the Avars themselves.

Thanks, that’s a lot better than the first idea for a response I came up with, which involved Sam Kinison, and couldn’t be posted. ;’)
