About The Greek Jewelry

Ancient Greece was an ancient civilization belonging to a period of Greek history that lasted from the Archaic period of the 8th to 6th centuries BC to the end of antiquity (ca. 600 AD). Immediately following this period was the beginning of the Early Middle Ages and the Byzantine era. Included in Ancient Greece is the period of Classical Greece, which flourished during the 5th to 4th centuries BC. Classical Greece began with the repelling of a Persian invasion by Athenian leadership. Because of conquests by Alexander the Great, Hellenistic civilization flourished from Central Asia to the western end of the Mediterranean Sea.

Classical Greek culture, especially philosophy, had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire, which carried a version of it to many parts of the Mediterranean region and Europe, for which reason Classical Greece is generally considered to be the seminal culture which provided the foundation of modern Western culture

About This Ring

This is a remarkable example of an ancient Early Greek needle-barbed arrowhead, dating 800-500 BC. The quality and preservation condition is of the finest possible level with this arrowhead showing both barbs intact, a full tang, dense bronze metal and an exceptional turquoise and earthen mineral patina. VERY RARELY are the tiny thin barbs BOTH complete and intact as this one shows. An arrowhead like this would have been employed against lightly armoured enemies, the narrow point being able to penetrate soft armour while the barbs inflicting secondary wounds if removed.  Removing it from the body would have even been more damaging than the initial impact.  Rarely do the delicate details of a metal barb like this survive intact as shown in these pictures.

 

Additional Information:

Dated – 800-500 BC

Height from top to bottom – 173 mm

Condition – Very Fine

Region of Ancient Origin – Greece
