Murmillo helmet...help
#1
Hello Everyone,

This is the 1st time I am posting on this section of RAT.....I think :?:

A friend of mine is going to try and make one of the two highly decorated murmillo helmets found in Pompeii. He has pictures of every angle possible EXCEPT those little plates or flaps on either side of the eye openings. He faintly sees figures but cannot make out what they are.

Can anyone provide me with photos of those small plates showing the details of the figures?

Thanks in advance

Do you have access to this book?

It has very detailed pictures of the decorations on many of the metal items from the Pompeii Gladiator barracks.
There are detailed depictions of the decoration on the flaps of three Murmillo helmets inside.
