The Codex 11093 is a German fencing manual thought to have been created in the 1440s. The original currently rests in the holdings of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, Austria. According to Dr. Hans-Peter Hils, this manuscript appears to have originated in southwestern Germany; his analysis of the clothing, arms and weapons provides us with the approximate date. Rainer Leng assigns this manuscript to the Gladiatoria group, but Hans-Peter Hils concluded that despite a few similarities to Gladiatoria it should not be considered a member. On the other hand, it much more closely resembles Hans Talhoffer's 1448 treatise in its content and art style.
