A Great sword with reversed crossguard!


Very interesting Great sword with reversed crossguard.
This unique crossguard position apparently is not in reversed position by mistake because this sword was founded as it is,and yet,this form of reversed crossguard can be found on frescos of warrior-saints in some Orthodox churches.
This sword was produced in mid XIV cent. and Orthodox cross,or Greek cross,symbol is engraved on it.
This sword(inv.12750) is in colection of Military Museum-Belgrade
