Description: **Originally listed for 200.

Luristan, ca. 1000 to 600 BCE. This is a tanged cast bronze dagger that at one time would have had a handle made of wood, stone, or bone. The blade is a long, tapering, triangle, with a wide, flat ridge in the center. 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 daggers like these. Size: 14.75" L x 1.9" W (37.5 cm x 4.8 cm)

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.
