Figure 4: This illustration shows a pair of mounted arquebusiers with the left-hand figure armed with a matchlock firing mechanism. Both men are wearing breastplates and morions with high combs and etched decoration and plumes. Both also wear loose fitting sleeves, of which the left-hand man has ruffed collar and cuffs, as well as a padded doublet. Other weapons include a sword and what may be the butt of a pistol on the right-hand figure. Both men wear tight fitting long riding boots with spurs.
