honestly, holy relics like the nails the Cross, the Holy Grail and the Spear of destiny were probably lost and destroyed in ancient times, here's why:

The Holy Grail: Was a common drinking cup used at a Passover Seder, when Jesus and his disciples left the Inn,m the Innkeeper had his people probably clean up the room and took all the dishes, cups plates, etc back to the kitchen to be washed. This was probably a clay cup so chances are it was probably broken in use. These were a common item made in those days. It probably looked like this:



The Spear of Destiny: This was the spear that allegedly pierced Christs side when he died on the cross. A Roman pilum, this was a common piece of equipment a soldier carried. Chances are the spear was returned to a storage rack in the soldier's barracks, and another grabbed it for use. It probably looked like this:




The nails used to put Christ on the cross were probably common long spikes used for applications other then just crucifixion. When he was pulled off the cross, the nail and cross were probably put into a trash pile.




So in conclusion, if these items DID exist, they were probably destroyed in ancient times

The only thing I might disagree on, would be the nail from the cross. Not that it was saved for being a future relic; But, weren't nails highly prized and needed back then? I don't think they would toss those out.

I'm with you on the rest though, especially The Holy Grail. If it were truly they cup of a lowly carpenter, it would have been made out of clay as was common then.

How is that the holy spear?

Roman soldiers would have carried standard Roman equipment unless they were officers of rank. I have never heard it mentioned that Jesus was stabbed by an officer...just a soldier.

Which would make the OP's picture much more likely.

Did a little reading on the Vienna lance. That is a replica gifted to Bolesaw I of Poland from the Otto III in 1000 AD.

Quite a little history on that piece.
