Description: Unconventional, local variant of a Chalcidian helmet with a bowl composed of two halves. The halves formed over a mould and connected by rivets: they are struck on the crown through a comb and in the lower section through the overlap of one helmet half. The lower part of the helmet with raised bands at the ear and eye openings. Set between the contoured brows a short nose guard. The lower edge behind the ear holes slightly bent outward. The upper part of the bowl separated from the lower section by a carinated edge peaking over the brow, set between the riveted comb. The cheek pieces connected to the helmet by a five-part hinge, two bushings per cheek piece. The broken bushing of one cheek piece replaced by adhesive tape. The hinge pins modern replacements. The cheek pieces on the front with two shallow openings. The edge embellished with a dotted double line in repoussé, the upper section with two additional triangles. The inside of the helmet partially stabilised with gauze and synthetic material. Green patina, slight hair cracks on the sides and top of the helmet, otherwise intact. Height 31 cm, width 18 cm, length 24 cm. From a Viennese private collection, purchased in the 1990s from an art dealer.
