It's... amazing.

There certainly is no mistake. Note how Ian Watson uses names of historical architecture:

rib vaulted, groin vaulted, fan vaulted, oriel windows, mullions, lancet windows, trefoils, barbican, etc.

So, apparently he saw the Corvus armour and immediately associated it with a visored bascinet helmet. Wow, such a discovery!


But is that abnormal... ? I mean... how else can someone make decent depictions of the scenery ? Inventing words ?
