Hunter on an 11th century ivory drinking horn
A number of superb 11th century ivory drinking horns and boxes survive, probably made in Muslim Sicily or southern Italy. Most show warriors and hunters with very convex hand-held bucklers, mail shirts, and broadswords without visible quillons. This was typical Arab or Berber gear, and could be seen as far east as Baghdad. (Victoria & Albert Museum, London)
