From the 'Fall of Gondolin', in 'The Book of Lost Tales II':

Before the attack: "The men of the Heavenly Arch are a people of uncounted wealth. They were arrayed in a glory of colors, and every single soldier had arms covered and encrusted with gems. Every shield was blue and its boss a jewel built of seven gems, rubies, and amethysts, and sapphires, chrysopase, topaz and amber, and an opal of great size adorned every helm. Egalmoth was their chieftain, and he bore, alone of the Noldoli, a curved sword, but he trusted more to a bow, and could shoot farther then any others among the host."

During the battle in the Square of the King: "Now from the south comes Egalmoth, whose job it had been to man the siege engines, long since having given that up, he had decided that situations merited hand-to-hand fighting, and had gathered those that remained of the Swallow and the Arch and fought away with that curved sword of his."
