Bishop Odo wearing a gambeson and wielding a mace, rallies the young knights to action. Ecclesiastics used the mace because they were not permitted to use weapons that shed blood. The first horseman in this scene might be Eudo Dapifer, the fourth son of Hubert de Rie. All four of Hubert's sons fought in the Battle of Hastings. After the battle Ralph was made castellan of Nottingham, Hubert was made governor of the Castle of Norwich and Adam was appointed as one of the commissioners in the compilation of the Domesday Survey. Eudo received, for his services, twenty five lordships in Essex.
