Bronze Corinthian helmet, 650BC.

This Greek Corinthian helmet from 650 BC  is made from bronze and is one of the most beautiful shapes of helmets ever made. Made in one piece, the skull follows the shape of the head and is extended downwards at the rear with a slight sweep to form the neckguard and at the sides, extended forwards at the front leaving a narrow face opening which widens into openings for the eyes, with a nasal guard between.
