Brass and Leather Praetorian Guard Helmet
The Praetorian Guard (Praetoriani) was the body guard of the Roman emperors. The title was already used during the Roman Republic for the guard of Roman generals.
Unfortunately, there are no original finds of the helmet. This version is modeled after one of the many traditional drawings of Roman stone reliefs.
