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.Size: 15.25" L x 1.8" W (blade: 8") Reference: Ancient Near Eastern Artifacts in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1988.Condition: Slight damage to one small section of the blade (from excavation); Patina partially chipping off with some of the original bronze being exposed.
