Even after the Attic ethnic groups had been living in the Iron Age for a long time, the Greeks continued to produce their bronze helmets. The varied helmets they made were later given the names of the regions in which they were first used. This Corinthian helmet is one of the most famous types of Greek helmets. It evolved at around the beginning of the 7th century B.C. Helmets like this one were made of one single bronze plate and shaped to resemble the human head as closely as possible. The cheek shields and nose guard protected the face, even if they did adversely affect their wearers' range of vision and ability to breathe. This helmet eventually became the standard head protection of the hoplite troops.
Our Corinthian bronze helmet is made according to ancient tradition: it is forged by hand and not cast. Its eye and mouth cutouts have extra riveted reinforcement. The helmet is made of 18 gauge bronze.
We also have a helmet stand for this item as pictured which is usually £19- but if purchased with the helmet is only £15-
