Protective Equipment - Roman Helmets
Hagenau type helmets
Bronze helmet attributable to the Montefortino-Buggenum/Hagenau
type (Hybrid type). Massive cast manufacturing with distinct hammer
marks on the inside. The helmet combines Buggenum Type features
(crest holder cast with bowl/no frontal protective bar) with a Hagenau-typical
larger horizontal neckguard. Both cheek piece suspensions have survived,
one of which is a clear repair carried out in iron (right hand side).
Private collection. Currently on display at Museum Carnuntinum ( Austria, Bad Deutsch-Altenburg)
