Luristan Bronze Short Sword

An ancient Luristan bronze short sword with elongated triangular blade embedded in a hilt with an open-cast crescent pommel.

Ca. 1500 - 1000 BC.
Length: 14 1/2 in. (36.8 cm).

Luristan objects, including impressive and numerous decorative bronze horse trappings and weapons, are found mainly in western Persia. Luristan artifacts are most likely the work of the ancient Medes, an Indo-European group that eventually dominated Persia.
