    I dearly love ancient arms and armor.
    That is an outstanding example.

    Thanks for the kind words, all! I know nothing about it, unfortunately and the donor chose to remain anonymous.

    A programme on TV recently said that the majority of these helmets were in such good condition as they were grave goods. There were literally dozens of them in a Greek museum being displayed.

    Here's just a few on display in the museum at Olympia.
