Alexander The Great  Era Greek Bronze Phalanx Spear Head, 4th Century BC
This was meant to be mounted on the end of a typical long phalanx spear pole based on its sheer enormity, far larger than typical hand-held Hoplite spears.  The size and broad willow leaf design to the blade is typical for Greek spears of this period.  The weapon still has its original attachment hole in the shaft where it would have been affixed to a long wooden pole.
