Alexander the Great Sword by Marto Alexander the Great was the King of Macedonia from 336 - 323 BC. He was less than 20 years old when he ascended the throne. In a series of great battles he defeated Greece`s old enemy, Achaemenid Persia. This gold finished sword honors one of the ancient world`s greatest warrior kings. This type of sword is commonly called a hoplite sword, named after the heavily armed Greek foot-soldier of the classical period. The hoplite sword was essentially a slashing weapon and was generally worn slung from a baldric over the right shoulder so that it hung almost horizontally on the left. Alexander the Great is shown with a sword of this type in a period mosaic from Pompeii. [Early Period Swords from Marto] [Tuscany Trading Co.]

Early Period Swords Ancient swords can be date back to several millennium BC. However, the best know cultures to use swords as a close combat weapon were the Egyptian, Greek, Celtic and Roman The Egyptians did not use swords as their primary weapon. They preferred spears, axes and clubs. Most of the swords used in Egypt were long daggers or very short swords with the exception of the Khopesh or sickle sword. The Greeks employed the more famous Hoplite sword Designed for their heavily armed infantry. This leaf shaped two foot swords was mainly used as a backup weapon like the Egyptians. The Celts around 700-600 BC employed the same style swords as the Greeks but much longer and heavier. The most popular ancient sword is the Roman Gladius sword. It was standard issue for the Roman Legions for several centuries. This 24 inch double edged stabbing sword was a couple inches wide and had a grip with ridges to fit securely in the soldier's hand. It is during the Roman era we see swords and armor used to represent rank and royalty.
