Maybe in China between the Mongols and Soong. Next choice might be in India.
I did not check the link.

Thinking early caveman in cave A tossing rocks at cave B neighbor. Caveman B sends same rocks back at cave A. Does rock tossing count as "early" artillery?

Hard to define "artillery duel" I guess is the issue. Would need both sides having artillery or cannon to fire…. and both sides waiting around for their cannon to hit something. China is a good thought by RN, but they may have used rockets only. Cannon came about in Europe so some medieval action comes to mind, leaving out castle sieges where both have early cannon, on walls and in trenches.
