Two horsemen, one inscribed DIOFEBO, the other, LO S(IGNOR) PRENZIPE DE ROSSANO both wearing plumed helmets, armor, holding swords with right hands, are astride caparisoned horses. They look toward the fighting on the opposite page. In foreground, army of soldiers holding spears and shields, behind them, eight soldiers wearing plumed helmets, carrying spears or lances, possibly astride horses. In background, sun rises or sets behind hill; buildings or towns are among hills and valleys. One of two soldiers fighting reclines on ground, the other kneels on one knee.
