The socket of this winged spearhead is decorated with eight shallow groves: two short ones above each wing and two longer ones at the other two sides.
A Winged Spearhead is a special form of lance that has two wing-shaped-overhangs on the socket. It has been used since the early Middle Ages to about 1200 and served primarily as a war weapon, but was probably also used for hunting of wild boars. As early as in the 10th Century under the rule of the Ottonian dynasty the lance (winged spear) got a representative function equal to the sword. From this time comes the legend about the Holy Lance, which has been granted a key role in the victory at the Battle of Lechfeld. Numerous of illustrations of guards with winged-lances come from these times and support this thesis.
