*** The Corinthian helmet originated in ancient Greece and took its name from the city of Corinth. It was a helmet made of bronze, which in its later styles covered the entire head and neck, with slits for the eyes and mouth. *** They usually had lines etched into the metal that follow the edges around the head, face and eyes. Out of combat, a Greek hoplite would wear the helmet tipped upwards for comfort. *** This thimble is a reproduction of the helmet, stands 25mm along the front face and is manufactured in England in traditional lead-free pewter. *** FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE for extra items, when paid together. If you are bidding on other items, please wait for a combined invoice before making payment.*** For Clarity: This item is not ancient!
