Historical Period

The falcata is a type of sword typical of the pre-Roman Iberian Peninsula (modern Spain and Portugal), similar to Greek kopis or Nepalese kukri. The falcata-like swords were derived from the sickle-shape knives of the Iron Age; that too explains their ritual uses. It is thought to have been introduced in the Iberian Peninsula by the Celts who spread the iron technology. It seems that its origin is parallel to the Greek kopis and is not derived from it

Inspiration

  • A) Decorated hilt of a 4th or 3rd century BC falcata from Almedinilla, Córdoba (M.A.N., Madrid).
