Greek helmet made in South Italy, 350-300 BC. Bronze. The elaborate decoration on this helmet suggests that it was strictly ceremonial and not intended to be worn into battle. Details added in relief and incision include eyebrows, hair curls over a diadem (headband), and cheek guards adorned with side locks and a striding animal. The crowning griffin’s head, wings, and spiraled feather holders were added last.

Ares: The god of war, bloodlust, violence, manly courage, and civil order.

His attributes are golden armour and a bronze-tipped spear. His sacred animals are the vulture, venomous snakes, alligators, dogs, and boars. Patron god of Sparta.
