The eleventh was led by Isoard count of Die, Reimund Pilet, Gastus of Biterne, Girard de Roussillon, William de Mont-Pessulan, and William Amane. The twelfth and last division was stronger than the others, and was led by Boamund, whose duty it was to assist any of the other divisions which should be hard pressed by the enemy.

Artabeth, Amir-Dalis, Amir-Tacaor, Amir-Mosse. All these were earnestly exhorted by Corboran, if they valued, his favour, to put forth all their bravery, and to despise the resistance which should be made to them by a rabble of halfstarved, raw, and inexperienced soldiers like the Christiains Moreover, Soliman, prince of Nice, lent his diliguut assist
