"'Corinthian' helmet, about 550 BCE
Greece  Bronze  ...
These helmets trace the increasing sophistication of Greek culture from its revival around 800 B.C.E. to the advent of the 'classical' age of Greece around 500 B.C.E.  The oldest examples are relatively simple bowls with holes punched around the edge to secure a thin lining. the more recent helmets from about 450 B.C.E. (about the time of the Parthenon) are beautiful and with a mysterious presence.  They are sculptural works of art, but art with a purpose, for details such as the contourred lower edge raised the helmet off the shoulders, increasing freedom of movement.
"Bent noseguards or cheekpieces indicate a helmet symbolically destroyed and presented at a shrine to honor a dead warrior."
