Bronze helmet of Apulian-Corinthian type
Late Classical/Early Hellenistic
mid 4th to mid 3rd centuries BC
Greek, from South Italy (Magna Graecia)
These helmets represent South Italian adaptations of the Greek type known as Corinthian. The general shape is more open at the bottom, and the articulation of the face includes marked ridges above the eyes and at the “hairline.” This example with the plume holder also has lightly traced ornament and the figure of a horse.
