Antique Roman legionary helmet replica (Imperial Gallic 'G' Worms)
Detailed replica of the original "AG 800" from the famous collection of Axel Guttman, which was auctioned several years ago. The original was found in the Balkans, exact whereabouts unknown.
In reference to the ornamentation this helmet is also known as "mouse and bread loaf". The depiction of the bread loaf is known from an excavated bakery in Pompeji. The mouse or rat is a frequently used symbol found on lamps and knife handles.
This helmet is comprable to a similar find from Niedermörmter (Rhineland, Germany). In adaptation to the opponents and their weapons, the neck guard is expecially long compared to the earlier "Wiesenau" models. The original's missing cheek guards were reconstructed following diligent research.
Deepeeka replicates this magnificent original painstakingly, even reproducing the fine latice design on the brow element.
Delivery includes a padded cotton cap for wear underneath the helmet.
