DESCRIPTION:  The helmet is of domed form with a flaring neck-guard and pointed cheek guards. The almond shaped eye holes are peaked at the outer corner with an incised lotus flower at each end. The rounded nose-guard protrudes. The perimeter of the helmet is edged with two rows of dots framing a line of punched tongues. An incised nine petal rosette at the center of each cheek guard. The inside top of the helmet was reinforced with metal to thicken it so it would be more structurally sound. Beautiful brilliant blue-green patina with some earthen areas. Corinthian helmets are extremely sought after for their fine classical design. Because of the difficulty in obtaining them this is the first we have handled. See Christie's Antiquities, New York, Friday 8 June 2007, lot 96 for another example
