Psalm 122 (Vulg., 121):
Amid crowd of soldiers engaged in battle with spears, two fallen horseman, one holding broken lance, lie on ground next to two fallen horses, both saddled and bridled. A third horseman rides into battle with lance drawn. Battle occurs at base of mountain (butte) surmounted by castle. In background is landscape, including river with boats.
