Inspection of Ikonion showed a long siege would be needed: knowing of the crusade, Manuel withdrew

The day after the battle outside Ikonion, Manuel made a circuit round the walls and decided that the city was impregnable, without the expenditure of more time and force than he had available (he had heard of the impending Crusade). He allowed his men to fire arrows at the battlements and desecrate tombs - but not that of Mas'ud's mother, for whom he demanded respect. Mas'ud's daughter Kamero lent over the walls and delivered to the Byzantine forces an eloquent defence of her father. Manuel then sent letters to the sultan and his wife, and started homewards 
mother of the sultan of Ikonion (Anonyma 17003)
  • By Manuel 1'’s intervention she remained undisturbed in her grave, despite Byzantine desecration of other Turkish tombs outside Ikonion: one should show respect, he said, for distressed nobility (:) χρῆναι ... αἰδεῖσθαι μᾶλλον δυστυχοῦσαν εὐγένειαν Kinnamos 45.21-46.4
daughter (Kamero) of Mas'ud I, sultan of Ikonion (Anonyma 25002)
  • She lent over the walls (of Ikonion or Taxara?) and delivered to Manuel 1's forces an eloquent defence of her father Masud 17001 (:) Niketas Choniates, Historia 53.46-51
Emperor Manuel I Komnenos (Manuel 1)
  • The following day, knowing of the Crusade, he made a circuit round Ikonion and decided it was impregnable without more time and force, so he plundered the area and withdrew (:) χρόνου τε πλείους καὶ μείζονος ἄλλης ἢ κατ᾿ ἐκείνην δῆθεν νομίσας παρασκευῆς Kinnamos 45.14-45.21
  • Stopped the desecration of Masud 17001's mother's tomb near Ikonion, sending letters to Sultan's wife, saying her husband had survived, and to Mas'ud himself, threatening to return next year and insulting his cowardice; he began the retreat to the capital (:) Kinnamos 45.21-46.9
  • He reached the outskirts of Ikonion and surrounded it with his troops, allowed his men to fire arrows at the battlements and desecrate the tombs, but then left the area and began the road back (:) Niketas Choniates, Historia 53.51-54
