An interesting attempt to recreate what the Corinthian helmets worn by Leonidas’ bodyguards, the brothers Alfeos [Alpheos] and Maron, may have looked like. Traditionally they are held by some to have been Olympic champions, and so in place of a horsehair crest, the helmet is decorated with a representation of an Olympic champion’s wreath of victory.
Athena [Ἀθηνᾶ] is the goddess of wisdom, courage, civilization, law and justice, mathematics, strength, war strategy and the arts and she is the daughter of Zeus. According to myth, Athena competed with Poseidon for becoming the patron goddess of the city of Athens, and she won by creating the olive tree; the Athenians named the city after her. She is usually depicted wearing a helmet and a goat skin breastplate. She’s often linked with the owl as it represents wisdom & watchfulness.
