Landsknecht, Initial A

Florentini Medici: S The Fall

Reproduced in "Initialen von Hans Holbein" by Gustav Schneeli, plate xcii. Schnelli talks about a "Landsknechtsalphabet" but the two other landsknechts I have seen (E and V by Cratander), are better executed and therefore probably probably not from the same series. The scene looks a lot like Holbein's A. See the original here: Landsknecht.
