Confession #2,406

Celtic Agen/Port Type Iron Helmet, Gaul, 1st Century BC

These Agen/Port type helmets were worn by Gallic warriors around the time of Caesar’s war in Gaul in the 1st Century BC. They come from Agen and Alesia in France and Port Bei Nidau in Switzerland. These Agen/Port helmets were the direct ancestors of the Imperial Gallic Roman battle helmets of later centuries. Made of forged iron, surface restored and varnished.
