Las reglas del montante ("The Rules of the Montante") is a brief, anonymous Spanish notation recorded in a copy of Melchor Cano's 1563 theological text De locis theologicis, libri duocecim....[1] It currently rests in the holdings of the Biblioteca Publica del Estado in Toledo, Spain. This is one of very few sources for instructions on the use of the montante, an Iberian greatsword, and is thought to have been inscribed by a student in the during his studies.
