ACO Bronze Sword

Bronze Sword

The Bronze Sword was a type of crude sword forged from bronze that was utilized by Philistine mercenaries. In 48 BCE, one was wielded by the Medjay Bayek of Siwa during his assassination of Rudjek, a member of the Order of the Ancients.

Description

Rudimentary in design and construction, the Bronze Sword was a simple double-edged straight sword which, as its name suggests, was forged from bronze. Like typical swords of the 1st century BCE, such as the Roman gladius, the Bronze Sword lacked a real guard, consisting only of a stop between the hilt and the blade. The blade itself tapered to a sharp point, but overall, it was a crude weapon of poor quality.[1]

History

A weapon common to Philistine mercenaries,[1] the Bronze Sword was wielded by the Medjay Bayek in 48 BCE when he hunted Rudjek of the Order of the Ancients to the Bent Pyramid.[2] A few months after killing his target, Bayek was forced to fight against Rudjek's bodyguard Hypatos in the outskirts of Siwa who he subsequently slew with this sword.[3]

Behind the scenes

The model of the Bronze Sword, a weapon in Assassin's Creed: Origins, is shared by the Thutmosid Sword in the same game, and it was recycled as the model of the Bandit Sword, a weapon in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, and its kind. The model is based mainly on the Achaemenid bronze sword from Hebron and has a typical Akinakes pommel.[4]
