Byzantine Weapons and Warfare
Once I get the axe head I am after, i will have to get a decent bit.

An interesting article. http://www.valhs.org/history/articles/m ... ng_axe.htm

In the series of three fresco photos the central one has a suggestion of the rider wearing a splinted greave - or is it just me?

Yes, the second one. Certainly looks that way to me too!

Here's a better picture of the 'greave'. It's unfortunate that so many of the frescoes are in such a bad state.

When I get some time, I'll post a few images from other regions. I have quite a few images of greaves - though none of splinted construction like this.

Cheers

Mr Katsikis armour has also been on display at the Dumbarton Oaks Centre for Byzantine Studies. I can hardley wait until he has his own website.
