12th century Byzantine Illustrations of Costume and Soldiers
#1
Lightbulb 
I have a small collection of 12th century Byzantine Illustrations of Costume and Soldiers:
Saints Theodore, George and Demetrius on a Steatite, Cherson, Byzantine, early 12th century
Plates depicting the Byzantine hero, Digenis Akritas, 12th century
Bowl with the Ascension of Alexander the Great, Byzantine, 12th century. State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, W-72
Dish with the Ascension of Alexander the Great, Byzantine, 12th century. State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, W-1501
David and Goliath, Byzantine Psalter, Palestine or Cyprus, 12th century. BL Add MS 40753
Codex Græcus Matritensis Ioannis Skyllitzes Chronicle, Byzantine Italy, 12th Centuries
Fresco of Joshua from Hosios Loukas (St. Lucas) monastery in Boeotia, Greece, 12th-13th century

There is also Ivory Alter Panels, 12th century, Museo Diocesano, Salerno, of post-Byzantine Greeks in Norman southern Italy or Sicily.

Are there other useful Byzantine military illustrations from this century?

Thanks Emilio,

I do have some images of Ivory Alter Panels, 12th century, Museo Diocesano, Salerno, of post-Byzantine Greeks (called Griffons) in Norman southern Italy or Sicily. But you are right that they can give an idea of Byzantine costume. Your detail photos will be useful.
