Iron Weapon Equipment In Troy

I was playing the Amazons and razing some settlements, thus with the razing option, I got a spear weapon, but it is written: "Long Iron-Tipped Dory Spear" which is kinda frustrated me because literally, Troy is taking place during the Bronze Age and there were no iron weapons at all during that certain type of era. I know the game itself taking their sources like from example from the Illiad and Oddysey, but this is literally ridiculous to think that such an iron weapon does exist in that era, Although the story of Troy itself may have just been a myth rather than a historical story, but what's really the point or the essence of the iron weapon existed during that era? Anybody got some logical answers in this case?

    I think the general idea is that the Dorian migration into Greece brought about the end of the Bronze Age there as the Dorians apparently introduced iron-working. I'm not sure how far this fits with historical timelines, though, so it might just be a game device.
