Roman Coolus E Helm Brass AH-6051-N
The Roman group of Coolus helmets was based on a Gallic form of helmet made in the Coolus district of Marne. This group of Roman helmets covered the period from the 3rd century BC to around 79AD. These simple Roman helms consisted of a hemispherical bowl made from bronze and had a reinforcing peak that ran horizontally across the brow and had a larger extension in the back as a neck guard. Many of the Roman Coolus helmets had a simple top spike as a plume or crest holder. Our Roman Coolus E Helmet in Brass is from a find in London England.
