This Germanic helmet is based on the spectacle helmet, which was a variation of the Spangenhelm. This style of helmet was popular in late antiquity and the early Middle Ages. Part of its popularity stemmed from the fact that it was relatively easy to produce.
Its entrance into Europe was preceded by usage by nomadic Iranian tribes on the Eurasian steppes. While it was the most common helmet design in the 6th century, it would still be depicted in illustrations 700 years later in the 13th century.
