Start by deciding what year you wish to have your impression represent. Helmets changed a bit over the centuries. Helps also to know what city state you choose to represent. The term "Corinthian" is used very casually by helmet suppliers.

The DSC helmet is nice, I have one, but it is a bit on the long side. It goes well past your chin like the Deepeeka, overall nice shape and you can't beat the price compared to a custom order.

For some reason we can have relatively accurate off the shelf Roman helmets for $150 but we can only have "okay" off the shelf Corinthian helmets for $150-200 lol.

It's not perfect, but with a little work it could be very accurate, mostly just taking a cutting tool and trimming off some of the excess

Matt, it could be that several people have spent many hours and trips to India to get the Roman gear in shape. Probably owing to a smaller population of people in the Greek reenactment community, less has been done for the Greeks. I couldn't prove that, but I'm just sayin' --
