Forgotten Friday!

Mystery Axe Mace! It is difficult to say for sure where this mace is from without information from its curator or collector as much of Europe shared casting designs somewhat among mace heads. This one is unique as it features an axe blade. It is cast steel and the raiment of the spikes seem closer to Byzantine designs rather than Scandinavian or Russian. It is also similar to ancient Elemite Empire mace heads minus the axe. Without knowing more, I’d wager it is from between the early medieval period where such mace designs were popular and some were being cast in iron or steel as well as bronze. #axe #mace #weapons #history #mystery
