Javelin head - Serce Limani 11th cent. Byzantine shipwreck, length 27.2 cm - The Sylloge Taktika (an anonymous treatise compiled circa 950AD) specifies that javelins should be one and a third orguiai (2.49 metres) or twelve spithamai (2.34 m) in length, and also that two or three should be carried.
Unidentifiable warrior saint killing a dragon. Faras Cathedral (9th-10th century). He wears an armour in Byzantine style. It is hard to say if one can interpret this painting as a proof for linothorax armour in (early) Medieval Nubia or if the artist just copied the motive from a Byzantine painting. Also note the (for Nubians) unusual shield.
