I was surprised to see a plate with the Jericho story from Semireçye in Central Asia found at Verkhne-Nildino was cast from the same mould as the plate with the Jericho story from Semireçye in Central Asia found at Anikovskoe. The gilding is different and there are major differences in the later engraving, particularly of the armour. See a side-by-side comparison of the Anikova and Nildin plates.

The Anikova plate is missing an axe that is present on the Nildin casting.

Well, well – I never realised that there were two of them! Very interesting find, Druzhina, thanks.

I've seen a lot of spellings of Semireçye, but I don't recall seeing this particular one before.

The 1st image I put up of the Anikova plate was from Armies of the Caliphates 862-1098 by David Nicolle.
He uses "Semireçye".
