A bronze helmet in the Illyrian style, beside a retexturing of the same model to give an indication of the possible original appearance. The bronze patina familiar from museum objects is a result of corrosion - original bronze objects would have been polished and appear very different, and were often ornamented.
The helmet is of the late type, which includes ridges over the head, elongated triangular cheek pieces, a neck gaurd, and a studded border. The helmet may be dated between the 6th and 4th century BCE, on the basis of comparanda. This style of helmet was open faced to provide grater visibility than the popular Corinthian style.
The photogrammetry model was compiled in Agisoft Metashape from 539 colour-checked images. Manual editing using Instant Meshes and Blender was used to reduce digital artefacts. The model was then duplicated, with a modelled crest and leather lining added, and retextured in Blender using textures from Poly Haven.
