La tavola ritrae l'arrivo di guerrieri Saraceni sulle coste di una nazione del Mediterraneo. I Saraceni attaccavano sovente le città costiere per conquistare schiavi e bottini vari; nel medioevo le loro incursioni erano molto temute in quasi tutto il Mar Mediterraneo, tanto che le tipiche torri di avvistamento (che potete vedere nell'illustrazione) erano appunto chiamate "torri saracene".

This illustration shows Saracen warriors landing on the coastline of some Mediterranean nation. Saracens often attacked coastal cities to conquest slaves and spoils; during the Middle Ages, in almost all the Mediterranean Sea, their raids were so feared that these typical coastal watchtowers (one of which you can see in this illustration) were indeed called "saracen towers".

Heh, Saracens- love that name. Still not a force to be reckoned with.

Well, they were actually quite feared during the middle-ages, so I guess they were a force to be reckoned with. :)
