History Edit

Surely the best type of example of a Spatha would be its Roman inception? It's what most people would think of. Viking blades, while related, are more commonly classed as a type of broadsword.--Fathirian Hound 09:20, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

Particularly since the term "spatha" refers specifically to the Roman weapon and its relationship to Viking weapons is more like grandfather to grandchild than "Vikings carry spathae." Moreover, why on earth is a spatha an exotic weapon? If you compare the real world weapon to D&D weapons, a spatha is a longsword that can do piercing damage rather than only slashing.
