Late Roman Centurion Helmet AH-6351-N
Our Late Roman Centurion Helmet is made from steel with leather interior. This Centurion Helmet has a central metal crest and is similar to the light infantry helmet, probably worn by auxiliaries instead of the legions. It seems to have been based on the similar "ridge" helmets of Rome's enemy, the Sassanian Persian empire. The eyes placed on the front of the helmet are reminiscent of the eyebrows on the fronts of the Imperial Gallic Helmets, and appear to be a Roman feature, not seen on Persian helmets.
