Italic Bronze Helmet of Montefortino Type
The crown topped by a foliate knop, the narrow rear peak with hatched triangular motif and ‘rope’ border extending around the helmet perimeter. ‘VII S’ incised on the underside. This type of helmet was adopted from the Celts, and eventually became the most common type of helmet in Italy by the 3rd century BC.
