A Corinthian type helmet hammered from a single sheet which made it far more resistant.

It has a simple domed form with a long noseguard, almond shaped eyes and an off-set neckguard. The edge of the helmet is pierced with holes for attaching a lining.


Part of a collection gathered during the 19th Century; Charterhouse collection by mid-20th Century; Sotheby's sale of the Charterhouse collection in 2002.
