A typical Roman imperial infantry helmet. This helmet design blends many of the distinctive characteristics of known archaeological finds of Roman helmets, into a standard pattern that could easily be seen on a soldier of the 2nd through 4th centuries. The hinged cheekguards, brow guard, neck protector, and ear pieces were all hallmarks of Roman military/armor engineering. This particular piece is designed as polished iron, with copper-alloy trim. It has two loops at the base of the cheekguards, through which a leather cord would be passed and then tied, to tighten the helmet to the wearer's face. I hope you enjoy this and my other creations.
