Trojan helmet w/ black brush & stand - 800-420 B.C. - The Greek Corinthian helmet came from the Peloponnesian city of Corinth, and was custom made for the man who was to wear it. It took a great degree of skill to fashion the helmet. Around the 5th century BC we see representations of Spartans wearing crests, this was probably a sign of high rank. When not in use, these helmets could be pushed back to rest on the head. This is the position common in Greek art as it allows the viewer to see a face. The helmet itself was very strong, but it had some serious drawbacks, the helmet left him practically deaf.
