Replik Montefortino Helm
Original: Circa late 3rd - late 2nd century BC, Gallic
This helm recreates one of the longest lasting helmet types of the ancient world. Recreated here is the Gallic version of the helm, with the distinctively Celtic "triple-disc" cheekplates. The "triple-disc" plates are now somewhat atrophied from earlier forms, and are comparable to the style shown on the Pergamon Arch and on the Ciumesti find.
This replica is fashioned from mild steel, and supplied with a topknob. The hinged cheeplates feature typical riveted-on rondels, and are now supplied with period-appropriate cheekplate padding made by the owner. The slight ridge or centerline visible on front and rear are a-historic, a by-product of the production process.
