¤ This shows how the men go to war and which weapons they use. They hold large square shields, about six feet high and four feet wide, made of cane and fortified with ox-hide. The more distinguished warriors have an iron bar, two feet long, fixed onto their valuable shields and this is painted red or smeared with earth. On top of that is a wooden frame to ward off the fiercest blows. Their weapons are mainly iron lances but in their belts they carry broad-bladed knives. They even set fire to their enemy’s houses so they become preoccupied in putting them out and are unable to fight. A: is a common warrior or ‘confokom’ who goes to battle with his bow and arrows. B: is a chief or ‘æne’ who goes to battle in the same way as the distinguished men do. C: is another ‘confokom’, with lances and dagger in his belt:
