Object Description

A fine Luristan bronze short-sword, featuring a solid-cast guard with no ricasso and a triangular blade with sharp edges. At its centre, a faint bump indicates the presence of a midrib, which is now very worn. The weapon displays a narrow, flanged hilt with a crescentic pommel, where an inlay plaque would have originally been placed. A beautiful green patination remains on the surface.

Date: Circa 1800-600 BC
