Sabre given by Theodoros Kolokotronis (1770-1843) to his comrade-in-arms Theodoros Leonardos. The liberation of the Peloponnese, following the siege and capture of the Turkish administrative centre at Tripolitsa on 23 September 1821 and the destruction of Dramali Pasha’s army at Dervenakia on 26 July 1822, was due to Kolokotronis’ genius as a military leader. L. 0.88 m. (ΓΕ 5867)
