Long Description

This is a well-balanced Ephebian short sword. Its steel blade is fairly narrow where it meets the handle, but gently widens until approximately three inches below the tip, whereupon it narrows to a wickedly-sharp point. Simple and functional, this sword looks able to terminate even the most protracted of negotiations.

Appraises As

The steel xiphos is about two and a half feet long and a couple of inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type sword.

Acquisition

Sold in the strange amphora-and-weaponry garden at the edge of the Harbour Market in Ephebe.

Also found on slaves in Ephebe.
