PHOTOS-One more helmet for the database...
#1
I never pay much attention to it, but there is one bronze conical helmet in my town´s armoury Museum, dated V Cent. B.C. Probably bought to an anticuarian, so it may be untraceable or a fake, but when I can have some photos, I´ll send them to you. It´s likely it came from an early century private collection, as the most part of the museum. Usually they have only three or four lines of profile. :? and most of the atributions and datations of the museums are dubious...
if someone can give me photos of drawings of this sort of helmets I´ll be able to identify it (Unable by the moment, my search had not results...).

Well, this is a sketch:
It´s plain, with two holes at the left and two on the right.It´s symetrical from left to right but not back /ahead (I´m not very sure what´s what still)

Not the "bent" part. It goes down and then curves outwards a while, and then goes upwards, all in a single curve, not going inside, or benting down before finishing, as the example. It´s just like the drawing (Paintbrush!) that´s all i can say. This week I´ll try to take some photos of it (and the assirian, etruscan and roman section...I hope you´ll find some of interest. perhaps I´ll post them in a off-topic or Rome´s enemies post, only for the museum´s photos.)

Yes, with, two little holes at the sides, I suppose for fastening (mmm. I´m not sure about this word.Thing-to-tie-yourself-to-your-helmet, as Leonardo of Quirm would have say...)

Danno Ulpius has another I think abit older that those above from Sicily 6th-5th century BC.

I fail to see what was so exciting about this kind of helmet, other than it was reasonably inexpensive to produce in a massive scale.
