Quote from: Duncan Head on July 23, 2021, 09:29:49 PMWould any heavy cavalry in a North African army carry bows? The Khurasanians sent to join the Aghlabid army, maybe; but of course they're not actually Arabs.

Quote from: Duncan Head on July 23, 2021, 10:42:29 PMYes; the Abbasiya were a corps raised in Khurasan c.795 by the Abbasids. A detachment were sent to North Africa with Ibrahim ibn al-Aghlab to uphold Abbasid authority, and stayed on when he began to act independently. So they were actually Eastern Iranians, not Arabs.
