The basic components of Greek armour were the front breastplate, backplate, bracers, and greaves. Most Grecian armour was made of bronze or brass. The Greeks wore muscle armour, which created the perception of impressive strength and fitness to intimidate their enemies. The Spartans, the most well-known group of Greek soldiers, were feared because their incredible skill in warfare and combat. Spartans have regained prominence in popular culture today thanks to the Frank Miller movie called 300, which was inspired by the Battle of Thermopylae between the Spartans and Persians.

We carry an excellent selection of Greek helmets inspired by the headgear worn by Hoplites and other Greek soldiers. The Corinthian helmet originated in Ancient Greece, named for the city of Corinth. Later versions of the Grecian helm covered the entire head and neck with slits for the eyes and mouth, which made it very hard for soldiers to see and breathe. Similar to those of the Romans, many Greek helms had large curved projections to protect the nape of the neck and dramatic crests over the top of the cranium. We offer brass and steel Corinthian helms, Hoplite helmets, Trojan helms, Spartan helmets, Attic helmets, Macedonian helmets, and more. These reenactment helmets are ideal for LARPers and collectors.
