Imperial gallic helmet from Romania.
#1
Salve Romani!

In a book - Connolly, Peter (1981), Greece and Rome at War has a image of helmet from Romania. Here is he, under a number 7.

I not was able find this helmet in Roman helmet database. I did not find him on the web.

Please help to find more information about this helmet. Where is he kept now? Are there quality photos and sizes?

Thank you.

I believe that's the Berzobis helmet, an Imperial Gallic D now kept in Bucharest. It is in the helmet database, but there's no picture (click on 'remarks' for more details):

Many thanks Nathan Ross. I revised all indicated literature attentively. It is sorry there are not photos. Only pictures.

Yes, That's the Berzobis helmet. I don't know why it's in the database as a Gallic D(?)

This particular helmet if it be Gallic or anything other shows how the cross pieces have been added to maybe stand up to the Dacian Falcs, so might we say very late 1st to early 2nd century in its useage.

As far as I know, the "eyebrows" of this size and shape can be found on helmets dated back to the 1st half of 1 century AD - so maybe it's a kind of "old-fashioned" helmet modified in the late 1st - early 2nd century AD.

Given that it comes from the short-lived legionary fortress of Berzovia, I think the very early 2nd century is a pretty good bet ;-)

The standard publication of this helmet is

Protase, D. and Petculescu, L. 1975: 'Coiful roman de la Berzovia', Banatica 3, 85-90
