Arakawa Sh. On the Design of a “Trebuchet” in the Tangut Manuscript of IOM, RAS // Written Monuments of the Orient, 2. Moscow: Vostochnaya literatura, 2015. P. 21-30.


The paper focuses on a unique Tangut manuscript (Tang. 46 inv. No. 156(2006), old inv. No. 5217) kept in the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts, Russian Academy of Sciences. In previous studies, it has been taken to be a constructional diagram of musical instrument. The writer concludes that the manuscript is the design for a pao 砲 (stone launcher, trebuchet, sling).
