Thanks to A. G. Maisey


You can see Elephants holding blades here as well. Gandhara art 1st-2nd+ Century AD.

Chinese monk Xuanzang mentions that emperor Harsha(7th century ad) had armored elephants with spurs attached to their tusks.

It is a very interesting and informative reference that fully explains the " spur" from the Metropolitan shown by Jens in the very first post of this topic. Good job, Milogow360! Thanks!
