Οπλοδιδασκαλια sive Armorvm Tractandorvm Meditatio Alberti Dvreri ("Weapon Training, or Albrecht Dürer's Meditation on the Handling of Weapons", Codex 1246) is German fencing manual created between 1600 and 1620, copied from a variety of earlier sources. Dörnhöffer's 1910 edition places the manuscript at the Universitätsbibliothek Breslau in what is now Wrocław, Poland; it was lost during World War II, and its current location is unknown. Based on Dörnhöffer's analysis, it seems that this manuscript is a compilation of Albrecht Dürer's 1512 fencing manual, selections from Christian Egenolff's Der Altenn Fechter anfengliche kunst, and sundry other items.
