The secutor was a gladiator who was specially trained against the retiarii. Retiarii were armoured with a net and a trident. Because of that the helmet has extra small eyeholes to protect the eyes from the trident. Besides it has a round shape so it can?t be trapped in the net. The secutor himself was armoured with a gladius and a scutum. Because his helmet was heavy and offered little space, the secutor had to be fast so that the wouldn?t faint from a short of breath.
This helmet is based on the research of Marcus Junkelmann. The helmet is made of 1,5 mm thick brass and can be made with a textile or leather inlay. The helmet can be easily opened and locked.
