Iron Pilum or Javelin Point. This one measures a total of 42mm (1-3/4 in). The Javelin point with a tang was 2-3 feet long and ended in a solid square point of iron. The tang rarely survives intact, since it was made soft to bend. This made removing the javelin point very difficult and painful from either a shield or a person. It also made moving around difficult with a shield that had been pierced by a javelin. Roman 1-3rd centuries, found in Germany.
