Stirrup hilted sword
The hilt consists of a stirrup guard, with crocodile pommel, scales extending for one-third of the length of the back-piece. The front of the guard, for the top half, has a laurel wreath, enclosing an ovoid plaque. There is a round finial with leaf decoration, langets with raised foul anchor, and a white ivory grip, grooved, with a leaf-decorated ferrule. The hilt is pierced for swordknot. The blade is very curved, flat-backed with a single broad fuller running for all of its length.
