Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381849027342 Luristan Marlik-Style Bronze Spearhead -Beautiful Shape Luristan, modern day northern Iran, ca. 1000 to 600 BCE. This is a large, well-formed, cast bronze spearhead with a pronounced rib extending to a thick tang that flares slightly for hafting. The style of the spearhead is that of Marlik, a major archaeological site associated with Luristan - a mound that contained fifty-three tombs. Within these tombs, researchers found a large number of bronze spearheads, which they have theorized were very popular weapons for Marlik's warriors, who lived in a forested, mountainous region. This particular type of spearhead is a Type III, classified by its long, tapering triangular blade with a projected midrib. This particular weapon does not bear marks of having been repeatedly sharpened for use, as some from the area do, so it was probably made specifically to accompany a warrior in death. Size: 14.5" L x 2.3" W (36.8 cm x 5.8 cm) #115601 Condition: Slight damage to one small section of the blade; the damage looks potentially ancient. Dark patina and slight dirt encrustation, with some of the original bronze color shining through. Provenance: Ex-Estate of John Piscopo. Mr. Piscopo was one of the largest collectors of ancient weapons in the US with a collection that spanned all cultures, all ages. All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back. All items come with a Certificate of Authenticity
