Attic Greek Helmet AH-6062-B
Similar in basic shape, and evolved from the Corinthian, the Attic helmet also originated in the Attica region of Greece. With its open face and hinged cheek plates, it was less confining and offered better vision than the Corinthian. Helmets of this style were carried by Greek colonists. Often worn by Roman light infantry velites, sometimes under animal skin, this style of helm became very popular among the native Italians, and the elaborate officer versions seen in Roman sculptures and immortalized in Hollywood films are derived from this helmet. This helmet is made of 18 gauge brass.
