Corroborating the Goliath of Agh’tamar, this St George wears a klivanion of lamellar running continuously down onto his thighs rather than ending at the hips, and so unmistakably made for an infantryman. Note also the sleeves of his padded undergarment emerging from the sleeves of the klivanion. An 11th-century fresco in the Church of Hasan Dagi, Kappadokhia.
