Product information "Imperial Italic D Krefeld"
Classification according to H.R. Robinson: Imperial Italic D
Continental classification type Weisenau-Krefeld
Replica of an original found near the gates of the roman camp and later Kastell Gelduba (Krefeld-Gellep, Germany).
Erected between 12 and 9 b.C., this roman fortification played a major role during the revolt of the Batavers
in 69/70 a.d. and survived until 500 a.d.
This helmet uniquely combines various style elements:
- "eye" ornaments with embossed pupils (as encountered in pre-roman helmets)
- embossed eyebrows (similar to Imperial Gallic types)
- cross-shaped reinforcement of Imerial Italic type
- nape visor with angular ornamentation, handle and "tabula ansata"
Since the original's jowl flaps were missing, they are designed here following the Imperial Italic D helmet from Worms.
Age determination
Style points to 200 a.d., though use in late 100s is also possible. Since there were no other dateable objects
found nearby, it cannot be proven, that the helmet was lost during the Bataver revolt.
Deepeekas elaborate reconstruction is the result of intensive international cooperation and replicates
this unusual helmet to greatest detail.
Steel and brass.
Includes a padded cap made of cotton.
