Inv. n°: MMoCA356

Corinthian Helmet of the Early Third Type

The skull is set-off distinctly from the wall of the helmet. The pair of stylised eyebrows above the eye cut-outs converge above the nose. The raised rim which frames the brows continues downwards to form a central ridge on the lance-shaped nose-guard. small, closely spaced drill holes, some still with the remains of decorative rivets, adorn the edge cut-outs. The neck-guard curves outwards and is set off from the cheek-pieces.
