ATHENIAN MEDIUM SIZE HELMET WITH CREST

The Attic or Athenian helmet was an invention of the ancient Athenians, derived from a transformation of the older Chalcidean helmet. The Chalcideans were the people of the city-state Chalkis in the island Euboea, famous for its weaponry during the Archaic Era (7th cent. – 479 BC). It seems that the Chalcidean helmet was popular in Athens and Attica, as we can see in the Athenian vase-paintings. These helmets, as with all our other bronze items, are cast in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method, therefore each piece is unique. It was made in Greece, stands 26 centimeters high, 11 centimeters width and weighs approximately 2.5 kg.
