Falcata is an antique sickle-shaped sword that was in circulation on the territory of the Mediterranean. The name “falcata” can be considered erroneous, which arose in the translation of Latin texts by Fernando Fulgosio in 1872. Translating the descriptive phrase “ensis falcatus” – a sickle-shaped sword, he considered it to be his own name, which gained popularity and replaced such names as “kopis” and “mahaira”.
