Alexander The Great Era Greek Bronze Phalanx Spear Head, 4th Century BC
This was meant to be
mounted on the end of a typical long phalanx spear pole based on its
sheer enormity, far larger than typical hand-held Hoplite spears. The
size and broad willow leaf design to the blade is typical for Greek
spears of this period. The weapon
still has its original attachment hole in the shaft where it would have
been affixed to a long wooden pole.
