This quotation:-

There is a chinese source (also Hasrinuksmo/Lumintu 1988: 19)mentioning short swords with rhino-horn hilts, send as a gift from Maharadja of Kahuripan to China (11 century?).

appears to have been taken from a work that is in fact quoting another source.

Could I trouble you to provide us with the complete verbatim quotation and any relevant footnotes?

Thank you,

Alan.
