This is a cast bronze sword with a flared, crescent-shaped hilt and a long, thin blade with pronounced ridge. At one time it would have had a handle made of wood, stone, or bone. Luristan, in modern-day northwestern Iran, was in a relatively crowded area in the Bronze Age, near the competing interests of the Babylonians and the Elamites. The mountain tribesmen of Luristan served as mercenaries for both of these powers and many of them were buried alongside swords like these.
