Bronze sword with tapering blade, raised flattened mid-rib and leaf-shaped sectioned guard. The hilt originally had a wooden inlay, traces of which still remain in the pommel recess; the grip has three pairs of raised ridges. This object was pXRF sampled in 2022 and the results were consistent with other objects of Luristani origin.
