Egyptian, Stone Globular Mace-Head, Naqada II or III, c. 3600 - 3100 B.C.
Stone Weapons and ToolsEgyptian, Stone Globular Mace-Head, Naqada II or III, c. 3600 - 3100 B.C. In ancient Egypt, stone mace heads were first used nearly 6,000 years ago in the predynastic period. The earliest known are disk maces with odd but beautifully formed stones mounted perpendicularly to their handle. Maces as a weapon were used extensively in Egypt and neighboring Canaan. A rounded pear form of mace head known as a "piriform" replaced the disk mace in the Naqada II period of pre-dynastic Upper Egypt (3600-3250 BC) and was used throughout the Naqada III period (3250-3100 BC).
