Thanks to the amazing success of several Greek-styled movies, Greek helmets have become something of a modern fixation. And at Medieval Armour, we offer a number of these classic Greek helms, featuring ones that were seen on-screen as well as ones that were used by Greek hoplites and Greek warriors throughout history. The most iconic of Greek helmets are without a doubt the Corinthian helmets. First used by soldiers of the City-State of Corinth in Ancient Greece, this brass helmet gradually gained widespread use across the whole of the Greece. Even today, the traditional Spartan helmets are actually just stylized Corinthian helmets that were modified to suit the Spartan's needs. Even Trojan helmets took influence from this well-traveled helmet! Traditional Greek helmets, as briefly mentioned above, were made in brass, although we also offer steel helmets in order to provide a Greek helmet that is more for function then for display. We also carry Greek plumed helmets, which feature colored plumage that helps to make the helm stand out. There are even a few royal Corinthian helmets floating around, which feature both plumage and impressively ornate designs fit only for the rulers of Greece's great city-states. And of course, what would a Greek helmet section be without at least one or two helmets modeled after the helms of the Spartans, worn in Frank Miller's 300. If you want a regular 300 Spartan helm, you'll find it here, just like you can also find Leonidas' Helmet, with its regal black plume. From movie to history, Medieval Armour has all the Greek Helmets, Corinthian Helmets, Trojan Helmets, and Spartan Helmets you could ever want or need!
