Historical Period

The Xiphos Greek:το) ξίφος) is a double-edged, leaf shaped, single-hand sword used by the ancient Greeks. This type of leaf-shaped short sword was not limited to Greece, but can be found throughout Europe in the late Bronze Age under various names. It is generally thought that iron swords had replaced bronze swords by the early La Tène culture 500BC
