Referenced on p9, The Moors - The Islamic West - 7th-15th Centuries AD by David Nicolle:
... a combat between a bearded Arab or Berber infantryman and a 'moon-faced' Turkish cavalryman. The former has a long straight sword, a small round buckler, and is wearing a long-sleeved coat which is probably the quilted soft armour described in several sources.
