Blade of the Past

One of the most important archaeological sites in Slovenia, which also has a rich research history, is the Ptuj – Panorama archaeological site, a cultural monument of national importance.

In the showcase of the month, we present a Roman-era iron blade with a bronze handle, discovered during archaeological research by the company Avgusta, d. o. o., on Panorama Hill in 2017. Although very well made, it has a blunt blade, which could indicate that it had a more decorative or ritual function.

The showcase of the month The blade of the past will be on display from 1 December 2022 till the end of February 2023 in the Salon of Art, Prešernova 1, Ptuj.
