Mamuka Tsurtsumia, The Evolution of Splint Armour in Georgia and Byzantium, Lamellar and Scale in the 10th-12th Centuries
St George of Khidistavi, Georgia, first third of the 11th century
Fig. 24. St George of Khidistavi in the lamellar with protuberances, after Chubinashvili (pl. 153).
As for the icon of St George of Khidistavi [fig. 24], created in the first third of the 11th century,
its kremasmata and manikia are really composed of scale plates with protuberances, but it is hard to be definite about the cuirass, hence they may be both lamellar and scale armour.
