5th/6th c. BC Greek hoplites - only ever seen the helmet with the transverse comb on representations of Spartan leaders. These could be Spartans as at that time Greek warriors used whatever symbol, on their shield, that they wanted.

The Spartan hoplite. A hoplite was a heavy armed warrior. A Spartan soldier generally carried a dory (spear), xiphos (Spartan sword), hoplon (shield), a Corinthian helmet, greaves (shinguards), and a metal or lamellar cuirass. The Spartan weapons were a well honed part of the ancient world’s premier war machine. Sparta’s elite warriors trained from a young age and unlike their contemporaries on the battle field, being a warrior was the only career they would ever know.
