    archaicwonder:

Greek Pilos Type Crested Helmet, 4th-3rd century BC 
Characteristically cone-shaped, bronze Pilos helmet with a broad, offset rim. A central Gorgoneion on the brow and four-spoke wheel appliques on the sides above the pairs of holes for the chinstraps. Three piece helmet crest (fragments preserved) with wave-shaped and serrated decoration.
The pilos type helmet is based on the pilos hat, a brimless cap worn in Illyria, Epirus and ancient Greece and later copied by Ancient Rome.
