Illustration of the battle of Yarmouk (636 CE)

Illustration of the Battle of Yarmouk (636) at the bottom of the page of an early 14th Century CE manuscript. The forces of the Rashidun Caliphate are shown with a star and crescent banner, while the Byzantines are depicted with a star banner. The Byzantines are also anachronistically depicted wearing Crusader-era armor. (Note that the banner designs are not attributed to factions with any consistency by this illustrator of this manuscript).

BNF Nouvelle acquisition francaise 886 fol. 9v. c. 1310 - 1325 CE. From the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
