The period of Christ, and the persecution of Christians. Slightly over 1 1/8” (1.16”) length with baluster top, indented grip, transverse guard, and tapered "blade". Said to represent the Roman Gladius sword, these were awarded to Roman soldiers wounded in battle. Bronze with fine patina. The blades often with a hole for suspension, or as here, tied on by the knob terminal.
