Roman helmet from the time of Caesar, 1.2 mm brass
This beautiful Roman helmet of the Coolus-Mannheim type is a replica of a helmet from the middle of the 1st century BC (approx. 50 BC).
The remarkably well-preserved original bronze artifact can be admired at the Musée Saint-Raymond in Toulouse, France.
This type of helmet, which was probably worn by Roman soldiers who served in Caesar's legions during the Gallic War (approx. 58-50 BC), generally consisted of a very simple helmet shell and a short neck protector.
This reconstruction of the helmet is made of 1.2mm brass and blackened inside. Since the helmet has no built-in lining, the delivery includes a cotton padded hood, which makes it comfortable to wear. The cheek flaps or side rings are made of steel and each is decorated with a small circular brass rosette. These rings, which allow the attachment of a chinstrap, are fixed inside the base of the helmet with riveted leather strips.
