Beautiful gladiator helmet
Roman bronze gladiator helmet featuring the hero
Hercules on the front and the defeated Nemeian Lion on the base of the comb. Dated back to 1st – 2nd century CE. Object located in Higgins Armory Museum (USA).
The round shape of the helmet allowed the blows of the opponent’s blade to slide off; protruding sides additionally protected the head. The helmet resembled the head of a mormylos fish.
