Imperial Gallic 'A' (Nijmegen), steel

This helmet carries simple but distinct 'eyebrows', which stabilised the construction and were typical of the 'Gallic' models during the Roman empire. There are ear openings, though without the ear guard flaps, developed in later models. The brow bracket is especially massive and makes an observer of the original suppose that this helmet model constantly slipped into the wearer's field of vision. More information...
