Description

The Corinthian helmet is undoubtedly the most characteristic type of Greek helmet. 

It first appeared in the  late 8th century BC and remained in use until the Classical period, when it gradually gave way to the so-called Pylos type, which was less obstructive for the vision and the hearing of the warriors. 

The Corinthian helmet as acquired through its long tradition and the fact that it was the main type of helmet worn by the Greeks in the Persian Wars.
