Rather simple in construction, this helmet features a rounded skullcap that is perfect for deflecting blows off the crown of the helm, while also featuring a ridge across the helm's centerline for added strength and reinforcement, similar "ridge" helmets of the Sassanian Perisan empire. Cross-hatch marks have been engraved into the helm's surface, while a pair of ovals has been embossed into the helmet's front section, all in order to enhance both the appearance and the strength of the armour. The helmet also features side protectors that hang from the sides of the helmet, without obstructing the wearer's hearing, as well as a back flap that offers a modicum of protection to the warrior's neck.
3rd century through Late Roman period, possibly 5th century
