This beautiful, hand crafted spear, otherwise called a "pilum" is ideal for anyone who collects Roman artifacts. Soldiers in Ancient Roman times employed this spear as a javelin, which would have been thrown at an opponent, or as a weapon in face to face battles.
This gorgeous decorative item is about 73 inches long when measured from the point to the base of the spear. The actual spear portion is about 24 1/2 inches in size. The spear is very well made and is bound to garner a lot of compliments if you put in on display. It would make an interesting present for a person who collects these items.
