Relatively few Spanish wall-paintings specifically illustrate Muslim Andalusian warriors. Here, however, the garrison of Valencia is seen surrendering to James I, King of Aragon, in 1238. They are shown wearing conical helmets and mail coifs one of which (B) covers most of the face. This figure might also wear some stylised form of lamellar or scale cuirass.
