Greek Helmet/ armour database
Hello and welcome.
The boeotian is not the only ancient name that comes to us. The corinthian is indeed mentioned by Herodotus. The boeotian is mentioned and described by Xenophon.

Some helmet types also fall in the same category as some hats, from which they evolved. So the laconian pilos may some times reffer to a bronze helmet, and some times to felt caps. The same goes for the boeotian pilos, which may have evolved into the more elaborate boeotian helmet by the time of Xenophon and Alexander.
