Anatolia, also known in antiquity as Asia Minor, was located in the Anatolian Peninsula, part of modern Turkey today. It is one of the first regions to have boasted bronze production, much like Luristan culture, which was located in modern day-Iran. Arrowheads of similar style were popular across Transcaucasian civilisations, dating from the 1st millennium onwards, and have been recovered in burials’ excavations.
Selection of Anatolian Bronze Arrowheads
A selection of Anatolian cast bronze arrowheads in different shapes and sizes. Arrowheads of this type are typical of the Anatolian, Turkish and Ionian region, and can be dated back as far as the mid 6th century BC. Items A, B, C, and D display trilobate heads; this shape was widely used for its armour-piercing qualities and light weight, which permitted a more portable bow.
Condition: Very fine, some earthly encrustations on the surface.
