Ancient Greek Bronze Corinthian Helmet, 6th Century BC

About

Greek helmet of Corinthian type, dating to the archaic period, circa mid-6th century BC. Hammered from a single sheet of bronze, with pointed cheek pieces, the thick, outward curving nose guard of rounded form, the elegant, almond-shaped eyes with elongated cosmetic lines. Corinthian helmets are the most striking and immediately recognisable of all ancient Greek helmets; emblematic of ancient Greece and its soldier-citizen, the Hoplite. Perhaps lost in a shipwreck, this helmet is covered in signs of marine life; snails, tower shells, sponges, molluscs, sea urchins and barnacles. Unrestored. Original find condition, areas of the surface covered with marine encrustations. Measures: Height 8 inches. 14 inches on stand. Length: 11 1/4 inches. Provenance: From the collection of Axel Guttmann (1944-2001). Inventory number H308. Color images of this helmet in the Guttman collection available upon request.
