I have found another depiction of a small cannon firing stone balls (Steinbüchse), mounted on a carriage and dating from the first half of the 14th century, in an illuminated manuscript mimiature, ca. 1344, the latter two parts including the attached miniature added ca. 1400:

Oxford University, Ms. Bodl. 264, fol. 255r.

Best,
Michael
