Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 盾牌中心的金屬缽,用來保護握盾的拳頭。自古以來具有補強防禦的作用,偶爾亦用作近距離攻擊時的武器。過了中世紀初期以後,盾缽的用途趨向純粹裝飾作用。 
Dutch ..... Metalen uitstulpsels in het midden van een schild, dat dient om de handlus te beschermen. Vanaf de Oudheid deden ze dienst als versteviging en soms als een aanvalswapen bij man-tot-mangevechten. Na de vroege middeleeuwen dienden ze eigenlijk alleen nog als versiering. 
Spanish ..... Metal usado a partir de épocas antiguas sirvieron como refuerzo y como dispositivo ofensivo (escudo) que se utilizará a veces; después del período medieval se usaron para servir puramente como elementos decorativos.
