The Early Christian city and house

Axe, knife and arrowheads
Weapons

These well-preserved metal weapons were used to defend the Early Christian city. Cast and hammered, they belong to common weapon types, which span five centuries. The elegant axe has two crescent-shaped bits of different dimensions. The dagger with a single cutting edge and curved blade had a (?wooden) hilt. The five triangular and lozenge-shaped arrowheads have narrow tangs for attaching them onto wooden arrows.
