ancientart:

Archaic Greek Assemblage from a Warrior’s Burial, 6th century BC, made of bronze.

This helmet with a mask, separate nose piece, band, ring, and plaque were found, with other bronze armor, in a tomb in northern Greece. The helmet, cast with beaded and incised edges, is of a type possibly developed in the Peloponnese in the 7th century BC and later used in Illyria (a region northwest of Greece) and other foreign lands. The other objects are made of hammered sheet gold.
