Hello Gabriele,

I've got a copy of "Prähistorische Bronzefunde - Die Schwerter in Italien / Le spade nell`Italia continentale". It doesn't include that example, but many of the same type, including measurements (no weights, but cross-sections). I can scan an example but I'd recommend getting a copy of the book, as it's pretty cheap (compared to most books in this series). You can get it here: http://www.antikmakler.de/catalog/praehistori...anguage=en

Hi Jeroen,

if you could give me that sort of informations it would be great. Neil has suggested me the same book, so probably in the end i should buy a copy.

thank you for your help
