        those swords are Greek style, right? I know they had them in Iberia, but was it from Greek or Phoenician influence?

              checked my google oracle, at first sight they don't seem to be phoenician.
              Checked it again, they seem to be from greek origin. Or at least the same used by greeks.

            They're rather similar to the swords originally used by the Caucasus kingdoms. They likely long predate Greek influence and go back to the Helleno-Armenians.

      But yes, the Greek Xiphos does seem identical to the Iberian Falcata.

      They look absolutely nothing like them.They are competely the the wrong size and length and are constructed completely differently.Unless you've decided that anything long sharp and pointy looks all the same they really dont.

        Well the handle and pommel are integrated in the bronze age designs. Obviously this changes later on.

          An integrated grip and pommel is not necessarily a worse design, although a tang sword would help conserve material.

        I want to talk about it but the thing is I don't actually know shit besides browsing swords from different IE cultures.

        There's some kind of proto IE sword many swords are derived from, anyone care to shed some light on this? Include the Celtic Sowords in there if you can just to keep it on topic with the thread.

            Did bell beakers had a similar sword? Or Post Corded Ware migrations to the west?

            According to Scythians themselves, or at least what they told or was told to Herodotus about them they exist aprox since the first millenia BC or so. Something tells me this sword would predate even that. But off course I don't know.

            It is indeed very similar. Iirc, the swords used by scythians were very short though, which is weird, almost as if they didn't use it while mounted or used it in a very specific way that I can't imagine. Something super metal is the scythian war pikes, now that shit's metal, skull piercer 420 noscope

                Yep these are very different to the ones I'm talking about. They're very similar to the Greek ones however. I'm talking about the stereotypical Celtic sword that many celts used also similar to the one many IE cultures used.

                You mistake your inability to distinguish short swords.With them having a shared cultural orgin.
