Description: 1490s depiction of the Siege of Orleans of 1429. There were claims copied between articles on English language Wikipedia of this being the "oldest Western depiciton of artillery", but this is ostensibly not the case, as plenty of artillery is depicted in en:Froissart of Louis of Gruuthuse (BnF Fr 2643-6), which is 20 years older. Plenty of artillery is also shown in Konrad Kyeser's Bellifortis of 1405.
