Greek Corinthian Helmet
This Corinthian Helmet in new style was originated in ancient Greece which took its name from the city-state of Corinth. It was a helmet made of ancient metals which covered the entire head and neck, with slits for the eyes and mouth. A large curved projection protected the nape of the neck. It also protected the cheek bones, which Greeks adored. Out of combat, a Greek hoplite would wear the helmet tipped upward for comfort. This practice gave rise to a series of variant forms in Italy, where the slits were almost closed, since the helmet was no longer pulled over the face but worn cap-like. Although the classical Corinthian helmet fell out of use among the Greeks in favour of more open types, still it remained in use until the 1st century AD by the Roman army. Made of 18 gauge Carbon Steel ,this helmet is favourite of reenactors and collectors.
