This bronze axe head is not from Luristan but was made hundreds of miles to the west of Persia.It predates Luristani weaponry by 2000 years.This is also not a tribal weapon.This is an excellent example of one of the world's first manufactured Military weapons.By that statement I mean to say that these were made in large quantities to equip particular ranks of a country's army.Per policy I cannot mention this axehead's country of origin but if you know archaeologica you already have that answer.There is an old excavation inventory number painted on the back of the shaft hilt(195).I believe this was excavated probably in the 1930's when there was huge effort by the British to unearth the tombs and mudbrick temples of that area.I did purchase this item from Great Britain.313 grams,the shaft is 3 5/8" from the back,the blade is 3 5/8" from the forward edge of the shaft hole,one chip on the upper shaft edge,nice original patina.This item was made to exacting standards and it has "perfect" symmetry.If you are an ancient history buff you understand one of the reasons Phillip of Macedon conquered all of Greece was because of the standard of his weapons production.They maintained weapons factories and were able to standardize production and quality.This country's army also had standardized weapon production.Many bronze axeheads from other parts of the Near East are readily available on .This type is much harder to find.
