Roman helmet of Montefortino type

Roman helmet of the Montefortino type, dated to the 4th-3rd century BCE. The object is made of bronze and is located in the Parco Archeologico di Lilibeo in Marsala (Sicily).

These helmets were made of brass or bronze with a convex shape, with a small elongation at the back of the nape of the neck. They usually had a plume plug on the tip of the helmet. The Montefortino helmet was derived from the Celtic style. It was used in the Roman army until the 1st century CE.
