The entire ornamental program of the sword in all probability had both a devotional and protective apotropaeic significance. The sword can be seen in the context of similar sword finds from the territory of the Teutonic Order’s state and its neighbourhood, as well as other swords whose ornament may be related to Crusade symbolism. It can therefore be suggested that the sword may have belonged to a knightly guest of the Order who participated in a Crusade against Baltic pagans."]
