Historical Background

The xiphos (ξίφος) is a double-edged, single-hand sword used by the ancient Greeks. It was a secondary battlefield weapon for the Greek armies after the spear or javelin, and as such was only used after the primary weapon was discarded. The xiphos had a blade approximately 65 cm in length, and was good for both cutting and stabbing attacks due to its leaf-like shape.

Anthos is the Greek word for “blossom”. Thus, Anthos Xiphos can be translated as “Blossom Sword”, an appropriate name for an item dropped by a Lycopodium, which is distinguished by the presence of a flower on its head.
