A bronze helmet formed from two curved segments each with a flared rim, nasal, raised panels to the upper section of the bowl, repoussé ridge forming curved brows; integral cheek-plate to each side, curved with a straight forward edge; and attached with hinges as separate pieces.

The Chalcidian helmet was popular during the 5th and 4th centuries, although types have also been found from the mid 6th century B.C. It was popular in the Greek occupied region of Southern Italy and was a lightweight progression from the Corinthian helmet. The term 'Chalcidian' is used as the type of helmet was depicted on Chalcidian pottery. Our variant of the Chalcidian helmet, with hinged cheek-plates, is known as the Lucanian type as it was used extensively in Lucania.

c. 5th - 4th century B.C.
