Armor from Spain and Portugal

    Again, while reading D'amato's book of the Western provinces, he has an illustration...plate E... of a centurion.  He claims that the helmet is from Conimbriga (Portugal).  Supposedly, he claims that the helmet brow band he copied for his illustration bases on the original has a brow band filled with niello.  

  Also claims that the greaves from the same illustration come from Merida Spain and that it is a rare find.

Does anyone know anything about these?
