This type of helmet was especially popular in the Archaic period, the 8thto 6thcentury BC, and only later in this period it had a crest. Since the 5thcentury BC people started to favour the Thracian helmet, which offered a wider field of view. The Corinthic helmet was generally made of bronze and covered the whole head, while there was a small opening for the eyes and the mouth. Later on the helmet was also worn by the Republican soldiers of Rome.
