Jarid (javelin). This was a military as well as the sporting weapon and some Ottoman and Persian riders were quite adept in hitting their target from full gallop. Marsigly describes bouts at the Court of the Ottoman Sultan where the riders would square off against one another and try to score points by throwing blunt jarids with the intention of hitting the opponent in the head. Short javelins like this one were made in sets of three, and carried in a long quiver at the side of the saddle.
