- The harpē (Greek: ἅρπη) was a sword with a sickle protrusion along one edge near the tip of the blade, mentioned in ancient Greek and Roman sources.
- By this definition this sword is not in truth a harpe. Rather it is modeled from the sword used in Benvenuto Cellini's statue Perseus with the Head of Medusa. On the other hand an actual harpe is featured in Antonio Canova's later re-imagining of the statue Perseus Triumphant which is the basis for the sword with the same name that appeared in Assassin's Creed: Origins.
