Legionary Helmet 3D Model
© 2018 Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust. Private Collection UK.
This infantry helmet of the Weisenau type has been dated to the second half of the first century AD.
The helmet is bronze and plain in design. It features a central crest holder at the front of the helmet which is set into a protective bar. There is a numerical inscription on the underside which may relate to its production. A helmet complete with cheek pieces is very rare and this example shows signs of ancient repair.
This object is loaned from a private collection and is currently on display in the Frontier Gallery at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust.
