Rome once commanded the largest army in the known world. While consuls, generals and emperors are remembered most in historical tales, it is the Roman Centurion who really did the dirty work on the front lines. These were functional officers who patrolled the provinces commanding their own legion or group of elite warriors. They tended to stand a head taller than the rest of their ranks, thanks to the crest you see on a replica helmet like this one. It’s perfect for LARPing, cosplay or just showing up and showing out at a seasonal renaissance festival.
This Super Deluxe Roman Officer helmet is festooned with the kind of blood-red crest that was indicative of a Centurion. They were superior officers in a Roman legion that had a crest made from dyed horsehair. Though this particular helmet’s crest is made from special synthetic fibers that look like real horsehair, but hold their color better. It also keeps your conscience clean, as this helmet uses no animal products.
