The carnyx or carnix, also known as karnyx or karnix, was a wind instrument from the Celtic Iron Age, from 300 BC to 500 AD. C. It was a kind of brass trumpet, suspended vertically and with a bell in the shape of a xabaril head. It was used in war, probably to encourage troops into battle and intimidate enemies. The vertical position of the instrument allowed its notes to rise above the heads of participants in battles and ceremonies.
