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.
