The Armenians and Syrians who were inside the city, came out and paraded themselves as if to flee, they were with us every day but left their wives in the city. They were ingeniously seeking to find out our numbers and what sort of men we were, and carry back all this information to those who were shut up in the city. After the Turks had been educated about us, they began little by little to come out of the city, they hemmed our pilgrims in on all sides, not only from one part, but they came out from everywhere in secret to meet us from the sea and from the mountain.
However, there was not far away a fortified town called Aregh, where there was a very strong contingent of Turks, who were frequently attacking our men. Our leaders, upon hearing such a thing and grieving very much about this, sent some from their own knights to carefully scout out the area where the Turks were. Having discovered the place where they were lurking, our soldiers, who were seeking them, encountered them. But, when our men were returning to where they knew Bohemond to be with his army, they were set upon by the Turks and two of those men were killed. Hearing this, Bohemond arose with his men as the strongest champion of Christ and the barbarians rushed in to attack them, because our men were few, however united as one, they entered into battle. There were many dead among our enemies, and other having been captured were lead before the gate of the city and there they were beheaded so that those who remained in the city would be more dejected.
Certain others were coming out of the city and, climbing a certain gate, were firing arrows at us, in this way their arrows fell onto the path of Lord Bohemond and the arrows thrown killed one of the women.
