Roman Republic Period, 3rd Century BC- Italy

Of hammered sheet bronze, consisting of a dome secured to cheek pieces attached by means of hinges that protect the sides of the face and the ears. A groove runs through the center of the dome for the attachment of a crest that also lightens the weight of the helmet for the wearer; the sides of the dome are more heavily protected. The cheek pieces curve around to protect the face and have holes at the bottom for attachment. Developed along the style of the Chalcidian helmet, popular during 5th and 4th century in Greece and Southern Italy.

Condition: construction originally in two pieces, with ancient rivet joins along the center, the left cheek guard professionally reconstructed. Otherwise the helmet is in very good condition overall, custom mounted.

  • Excellent service from the shop, US postal service was a bit slow. Goods were packed very well, follow-up on slow US postal delivery was excellent.
