Italo-Corinthian Helmet with Plume, Black, Adorned
The Corinthian originated in the 7th C. before Chr. and is the typical picture of the greek helmet to this day. It's origins are in the city of Corinth. It quickly became a fixed part of the greek Hoplite armour and its use extendet as far as Italy, where, with a few modifications, it became one of the more popular helmets for the troops of the roman republic.
The replica of the Italo-Corinthian helmet is made of black coloured steel and features the typical form of this helmet, consisting of a long front end, nosescreen and bent neck protection.
