Greek Bronze Corinthian Helmet

 

Greek Bronze Corinthian Helmet

An archaic ancient Greek bronze helmet of the Corinthian type, of upright bell-shaped form with almond shaped eye holes that taper to a point, cheek pieces that leave a wide vertical opening for the mouth, and a perforated border, which once secured an inner lining; with battle damage over the brow, and covered on the proper right side with marine incrustations.

Ca. 650 - 600 BC.
Height: 9 5/8 in. (24.5 cm).

cf.: for similar upright early Corinthian helmets with parallel sides, R. Hixenbaugh and A. Valdman, Ancient Greek Helmets: a Complete Guide and Catalog, 2019, cat. nos. C54 -C128.
