Greek Helmets, Spartan Helmets and Corinthian Helmets
While the Corinthian helmet might be the most popular and the most well-known Greek helmet, it is not the only one. And Dark Knight Armoury is all too happy to provide a selection of historically accurate Greek helmets that are perfect not only for display, but also for wearing, either as a part of a costume or as a functional piece of battle-ready armor. The Greeks were no slouches when it came to their warriors, with many being equipped with the finest weapons and armor of the times ensuring that when it came to blows, Greek warriors were among the strongest of their age. Greek helmets were actually rather varied in design, although the most common of the Greek helmets is by far the Corinthian helmet. This helmet is often viewed as the quintessential helmet, having been worn by Corinthians, Spartans, and many others, due entirely to how protective it was. The helmets witnessed in Frank Millers 300, as worn by King Leonidas and his Spartans, are actually stylized Corinthian helmets. We also offer Trojan helmets, which are similar in style to Corinthian helmets, while featuring subtle differences in shaping that show a similar evolution. Also offered are helmets from Attica, Boeotia, and Athens, each possessing a distinctive look and style that makes each one distinctive and unique. Many of our Greek helms are offered in quality materials, ranging from authentic looking bronze or iron to the more modern steel. Collectors will no doubt find that these Greek helms are a great find, being worthy of display in the home or the office, while reenactors will find them to be worthy for a different reason. In spite of age and hundreds, if not a thousand and more years of evolution, each of our Greek helmets remains as protective as their later cousins, and that is what makes them so great a treasure to have, both as a display item and as a piece of battle regalia.
