This Greek Sauroter Butt Cap is forged from steel and is ready to be mounted onto your own wooden Dory spear pole end. Its pair of pre-drilled holes allow for it to be secured in its mounting with screws or nails. Mounting hardware is not included.

Although its primary function is to be a counterbalance to the spearhead, the Sauroter can function as a spiked spearhead in its own right should a speartip be broken or damaged in battle. Sauroter means ‘’lizard killer’’ - a reference perhaps to soldiers on guard duty spearing a wayward reptile. The Sauroter may have also functioned as a method for dispatching wounded foes on the ground. In the tight confines of a compressed phalanx it may have been impossible or inadvisable to turn a spear around to strike a foe on the ground, but the spiked sauroter would have done the job quite well, particularly with the full mass of the spear behind it in a powerful downward blow.
