Italian crossbow, second half of 15 century

Same principle as on earlier crossbows. The biggest differences are the ridge on the stock and longer top plate. Close inspection reveals inlays on the tiller and hinge securing the prod. No hooks or rods for advanced tensioning systems are visible, therefore simple hook and belt arrangement was used (or haussepied?) Found here
