This spectacular crested helm originally appeared in a more primitive form in Greece around 350 BC, but saw its most popular use during the Roman Empire. It saw service with Legionnaires, Centurions and Legates up to 400 AD and varied from plain to decorative.
Although it does not represent any specific helmet, the style appears in many art artifacts throughout Greek, Roman, Etruscan and Samnite history. A must for any collector of fine militaria.
This brass version is adorned with fine details and a handsome red horse hair crest, fit for any officer!
This helm is fitted with webbing & chin strap.
A tie is used to secure cheek plates under the chin when worn.
