Description of the Product

This spectacular crested helm originally appeared in a more primitive form in Greece around 350 BCE, but saw its most popular use during the Roman Empire. It saw service with Legionnaires, Centurions and Legates up to 400 CE and varied from plain to decorative. Our version is made from hand worked brass and is adorned with handsome leather accents and a horsehair crest fit for any officer. Although it does not represent any specific helmet, the style appears in many artifacts throughout history. A must for any re-enactor or collector of fine militaria. Also available with a red crest.
