The term Luristan is a generic term since, as with the vast majority of such pieces, we do not have the detailed information of a specific find site. Similar weaponry has been found in other parts for of the country, for example at the Royal tombs at Marlik to the north of Luristan province of a similar date. However, 'Luristan' items are well documented and we can have recourse to many museum collections as well as detailed descriptions in various publications.
