Extremely rare cylinder seal, Neo-Babylonian or Neo-Assyrian, ca 900-600 BC.

A highly interesting and rare short dagger, Western Asia or Ancient Near East, 2nd. millenium BC.

The type is very peculiar: At first glance we thought it to be Bactrian but the raised central area of the blade and the fine engravings of the handle, points to Greater Persia.

We think it's rather late and has perhaps never had a handle - could be a sort of throwing knife?.

Size: 28,4 cm.

Condition: Superb!. Fine metal and clear details, nice green patina...
