Xiphos


The Xiphos is the Greek short double-edged. It was their secondary battle weapon, next to the Javelin. 

Xiphos' can have cross sections, sometimes decorated.  And sadly not many Xiphos survived.  



*Disclaimer: I have done extensive research on each of these weapons. I am aware that there are many different versions of each of these weapons. I am not trying to spread false information. If you know and can prove any information wrong, please let me know and I will fix my errors.  I have at least three references for all research on the weapons I will discuss through the challenge.
