Roman legionnaires, centurions, and gladiators wore many kinds of protective headwear during the reign of the Roman Empire. One traditional Roman soldier helm was called a galea helmet, while another was known as the Imperial Gallic helmet due to the influence of the Gauls. Many of these historical helms featured cheek plates and flared out in the back to protect the nape of the neck. Other Roman helmets displayed dramatic crests made of real plumes or horse hair, marking the ranking Roman officer. Medieval Collectables carries a wide variety of Roman helms for collectors and re-enactors, such as Roman crested helmets, gladiator helmets, and Greco-Roman helmets. We are sure that you will find the right legionnaire helm to pair with the rest of your Roman armour.
