Swords with anthropomorphic hilt are rare archaeological finds. This leads one to assume that such swords may have been ceremonial weapons exclusively reserved to warriors of higher rank. The limited size of these daggers and swords (approx. 50 to 70 cm) further corroborates this theory. However, they were still functional and could possibly have served as secondary weapons to longer swords. The handle's profile remained quite schematic at first, but its human-like form became more graphic in the course of the 2nd century B.C., featuring a head-shaped pommel.More information
