Product Description

Elevate your decor with classical antiquity art styles, and transform any space into your own private history museum with this impressive, life size replica of Miltiades' Helmet. Handmade in Greece from solid bronze, this exact museum reproduction is based on a 490 BCE votive helmet, which belonged to Miltiades, the Athenian general of the Battle of Marathon. Miltiades arranged his army in a narrow valley along the route to Athens with the intent of blocking the Persian advance. The narrow corridor would prevent the Persians from implementing their cavalry, which is often considered the source of their military dominance. The Persian infantry was forced to march head on into a disciplined Athenian army, armed with bronze shields and steeled determination, which resulted in Persia’s devastating defeat. The helmet was devoted by Miltiades to the sanctuary of Olympia, and bears an inscription with his name.
