Encrusted Chalcidian HelmetYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
An ancient Greek helmet in the Chalcidian style, encrusted with marine life.
This style of helmet was the most popular in Archaic and Classical Greece, a 5th century BCE development allowing for greater visibility than the heavier Corinthian style. This particular example is well made and highly decorative, featuring a molded ridge on the forehead and stylized ornamental brows applied after casting. The punch holes used to fix the brows are visible where one is missing. On close inspection, a number of buckles and loops can be seen at the top and back of the helmet, potentially used to fix an elaborate crest or other ornamentation.
Due to the fragility of the helmet, it was not possible to fully photograph the interior.
