Late 5th century impression - Smiling Sisyphus - 09-04-2017

Im considering about doing an impression of a hoplite from the late 5th century. More precisely from the years 431-404, so pretty much the Peloponnesian War. 
I know that the most popular kind of armour would be the linothorax, but could a muscle cuirass work too? I know they would have used the pilos helmet, but where there other helmets that would be popular?

All advice will be appreciated
