We at Timeless really like these little bronze arrowheads.
Cast in Greece around 2400 - 2600 years ago, they were made shortly after Ancient Greece suffered a dark age, where much of their scientitfic and technical understanding was lost - including their alphabet!
Following the Greek Dark Age was a 'new dawn' - now known as the Archaic Period. It was during this period that the city-states first came to power. The following centuries would be dominated with wars between Athens, Corinth, Sparta, and the many other city states of ancient Greece, and it was during this period that the Spartan king, Leonidas, and his band of 300 warriors were defeated at the Battle of Thermopylae!
With a history like that, who knows in which battles these arrowheads may have been used.
Mounted on a sterling silver chain, these are particularly large examples ranging between 3.5cm - 5cm in length and are of trefoil, lead-bladed or twin-bladed types. Note that the actual arrowhead you receive may differ to the ones pictured above, although it will be very similar
Interesting little artefacts from our ancient history, now available at the Timeless Galleries
