Unidentified spearhead

Nice spearhead! Is it iron? I can't tell if the brown/orange material is rust or, rather, deposits over bronze.

As far as I can tell it's Iron, it might be mixed with something as in the middle section you seem some red-ish patina almost.

This is the book you might want to have a look at. It has numerous plates for weaponry, including shafted weapons, from all periods of Roman history. Spearheads are notoriously hard to attribute, though. With your example, the split socket looks unusal to me, but I am definitely not even close to an expert.
