I seem to like these Corinthians with longer cheeckpieces for additional protection as you can see in this picture:

Very cheeky of you.

Cheeky indeed, they would look great with black/white block motives with red horse hair to the shoulders and with rams on the cheeck pieces. :mrgreen:

There were corinthians with long cheek pieces,but not really that much. It may even prevent you from turning your head right and left. Actually i think i have heard this problem from a reenactor,but this wasn't really a problem in the originals.

Very interesting topic from which I’ve learn a lot.
Talking about Corinthian helmets two of them which were found in Bulgaria are now part from national museums collections.
If I have to be honest I am still new in ancient history and I was surprised to find this information in this very interesting book about the Ancient Thracian warriors!Author

This very interesting book I happen to have in my modest collection is unfortunately only in Bulgarian language but I have the feeling we’ll see very soon even better and more pictures book in English from the same outer and the same artist!
That what may seem to you interesting is the photos of two corinthian helmets fount in Bulgaria and we can see them in our museums![attachment=3:1dktt4wa]<!-- ia3 IMG_4272.JPG<!-- ia3 [/attachment:1dktt4wa][attachment=0:1dktt4wa]<!-- ia0 IMG_4274.JPG<!-- ia0 [/attachment:1dktt4wa][attachment=1:1dktt4wa]<!-- ia1 IMG_4273.JPG<!-- ia1 [/attachment:1dktt4wa]
Of course no doubt so many others Corinthian helmets we fount from treasure hunters in Bulgaria but we don’t know anything of their history unfortunately.
One of them is positioned in National Museum of History in Sofia

The another on is The National Museum of Military History in Sofia

And there are is another one belongs to privet collection in town Ruse-Bulgaria.
About the last one my brother will investigate further and we’ll share the information we hope to get from the respectable businessmen who has this particular privet collection!

Hello
Thucydides in his account of the Battle of Pylos mentions that the Spartans' felt helmets were not able to withstand the arrows. I wonder what these felt helmets would have looked like. Can someone post a pic pleeeeeese?!!!
