A great stack of arakhs. These are all basically cast out of resin, and are relatively tough, able to take some knocks. We notice that there appear to be three, distinct sets of arakhs. The most numerous are the ones starting at the left, very much in the vechevoral style. Then we have the ones we’ve noted look a bit more like the khopesh sickle-sword, with a quite ornate, “carved” grip, followed by one that appears to be even more ornate, with a woven cloth band decorating it, which we may have seen carried by one of Drogo’s bloodriders here, and so may represent weapons of the bloodriders or other, high-ranking Dothraki such as those called kos.
