Good shot in showing that both present example posted by Alexander and previous one posted by Matchlock are the same, Marcus.
However you are not saying that the one i posted in #29 is also a setup, are you ?

Hi Nando,

I am not sure about the barrel you posted either... it seems strange to use two different methods of cannon building in the same cannon. Beeing wound iron (round part) band and wrought iron (octagonal part).
The wound iron band cannon of Aljubarrota type (and even more possible, it might be one of them!!!) would have been good for the late 14 th century while the octagonal style came more into beeing after the 1400s...
Difficult to say anything definitive without more pictures.. but i would not relate the noble Portugeuse name to quick to this piece (or half of it)
