The Imperial Italic'D' (Mainz) made by Deepeeka is an accurate replica ornate based off historical research and authentic in its design. The major group, were the Imperial-Italic, which were in shape similar to the Imperial-Gallic but because of their simplicity of construction technique and lack of decoration Russell Robinson placed them as being made by Italian smiths and probably based on the Greco-Etruscan and Italian helmets of the Republican period. They were in use from the late 1st BC to early 3rd century AD.Several types used twist on crests that were held in a T shaped holder on the crown. The earliest known versions of these helmets have no archaeological provenance but are claimed to have been found in Herculanium, so may have been used by the Urban Cohorts or the Praetorians. This Roman Imperial Italic D Helmet is constructed from 18 gauge steel and is well ornamented in brass detailing; the interior of the helm is blackened and unlined.
The cheekplates of the helmet are hinged and they have small rings on the inside which allow for a chinstrap to be attached. A slot at the top allows for a helmet crest to be added (not included).
Included with the helmet is a separate padded cotton arming cap. Front to Back: 8 1/4'. Side to Side: 7 7/8'. 25'' Around 4 lb 4 oz.
