BC .- II century. BC. Spears, darts and axes ScythiansScythians widely used spears and darts. Buried next to each warrior always found one or two spears. Some of the graves were more than two, for example, in the royal burial mounds near the town of Berdyansk on the Sea of Azov were more than 10 copies, and darts. Until recently, historians believed that the Scythians were only short spears and javelins, which could be used only in the melee. This conclusion they did from the simple fact that the graves of the Scythians are small in length and they hardly could fit a longer weapon. As long as they do not pay attention to the fact that the staff in the grave is separate from the tip, no one came to mind that spear before burial could simply break in half.

Longer tips produced appears to increase the penetrative power of weapons. Darts were only throwing weapons. Their tips were quite different forms. They had a long iron handle of a small pyramidal head, equipped with notches. It is clear that this form was attached to the tip specifically to make it more difficult to remove from the wound or punched shield.
