Imperial period, 1st-2nd century AD. A U T H E N T I C. It has rust and wear caused by the passage of time. Measurements: 19 x 4 x 1.5 cm. Roman bronze dagger made of bronze with a wide, flat blade, with a hilt decorated with mouldings and details in relief.
This ornamental presence, defined by the head that is outlined in the central area of the hilt and the motifs located in the circular top of the upper area, indicate that the work probably belonged to a private collection, with no direct link to the military world. The Romans were the ones who, as a culture, contributed a great deal in terms of weaponry. Their policy of conquest and invasion of territories gave rise to the development of a whole range of weapons in which they stood out for their refined technique, thus achieving lighter, more versatile and effective weapons. Although it is not a piece intended for use in war, its finish denotes the aforementioned knowledge of Roman culture in the creation of weapons. This type of piece was very common in the Roman Empire, but also in other cultures that, directly or indirectly, had contact with them.No CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY, but if you were to have in AUTHENTICATED, you will be PLEASED to find out it is ABSOLUTELY AUTHENTIC.
