Thank you Jasper for posting this! These stylized zoomorphic quillon terminals really do present an interesting case for influence and symbolic styling diffusion. These downturned quillons with such terminals do indeed seem to reflect similarities in a sense to the Nasrid hilt forms as well as to the makara/dragonheads of Ottoman and Indian subcontinent.

Great examples you have posted and good to see this thread back up
