Good afternoon Gentlemen,

I've been searching the internet, and was wondering if any of you have pictures or documentation on exisiting historical "gladiator" style helmets. I stretch this term to also include interesting Greek and Roman style helms, different from the standard legion and historical greek helmets.

The following pictures (reproductions) seem to follow the general trends of the historical museum and private collection piece pictures I can find. These are from the legionxxiv.org website.

the Hoplomachus style gladiator helmet



the Thracian style helmet



the "Mirmillo / Murmillo" or "Fish Man" style helmet, on the left, and a "Secutor" or "Chaser" style on the right



Are there any style or types that I'm missing?

There is also the Osprey Series book on Gladiators (click the link below for a good pic of the cover)

In particular I'm looking for more information on the helm on the upper RIGHT (edit: I said left in initial post) of the cover. I have not seen any like it during my searches, and I love to see the historical examples and pictures from different angles.

Thanks Guys ! Any help is appreciated !
