Roman Guards Helm 62-8119
Our Roman Guards Helm worn by the Guards based in Rome that stood as the main body of troops in the defense of the Roman Empire, unlike the legionaries who were stationed primarily on the frontier, marching throughout Europe. These elite Roman soldiers were the Emperor's personal instruments for discouraging plots and rebellions and were quite effective in crushing unrest. This Gallic influenced full size wearable Roman helmet worn by the elite Roman guardsmen of the early first century is handcrafted of 18 gauge steel and boasts classic brass accenting. This is a most interesting addition to ancient armour collections.
