Excellent photos, thanks for posting.

Are they from The Benaki Museum in Athens?

For all of my collecting "career" I have concentrated on plain, practical, everyday weapons. When I see a collection like this I wonder if I made a mistake !! Absolutely beautiful.

Regards
Roy

No, sorry, only some other views and zooms that I'm posting now.
But I prepare a new thread with the weapons of "central" Benaki Museum.
