Figure 7: A cavalryman armed with what appears to be a stirrup crossbow. His costume is typically German and illustrates fashionable slashes as well as parti-coloured jerkins and tight-fitting hose. The wide brimmed hat has a bolt pinned to it which appears to have been common practice in the sixteenth century. He has a sword and a dagger at his waist.
