An extremely rare and exceptional bronze lance, Likely North-Eastern Persia, late 2nd. millenium BC.

A slender type with a very pronounced central midrib and rather long tang, that would have held the blade securely fixed to the wooden pole. The design and size of this lance would have made it a very fearsome and superb weapon in antiquity.

Size: approx. 49 cm. - rare in this large size.

Condition: Superb, uncleaned and with earthern encrustions over a wonderful dark green water patina. It will improve much if carefully cleaned.
