  1. Victory at Ai (Canaan):
    “A furious slaughter ensues as Joshua leads the Israelites once more against the city of Ai. Astride a bay horse fitted out with white trappings, Joshua deals a terrible blow with his two-handed glaive (a type of broadsword), splitting an opponent at the waist and spilling his entrails. The despairing defenders flee toward the besieged city, but they are clearly lost: above them, the king of Ai is suspended from a war engine. Meanwhile Israelite foot soldiers attack with crossbows and ladders at the city gate.” (Joshua 8:18–29)

    From The Morgan Crusader Bible of Louis IX or Maciejowski Bible or The Bible of Shah Abbas. (Ms Morgan 638, folio 10v)
