the rotulars (wheel: flat and perhaps convex round shield, however we will address this problem later),
the license plates or plates
(in the note the author describes them as a shield made of wood and lined with leather shaped in the shape of a heart, they could be the ancestors of the sixteenth-century plaques that we know and that can be seen in the Hesperis).
and around 1456 the shot-guns or shot-guns armed with bronze and iron blasts.
