Roman Officer Centurion Historical Helmet Armor


The centurion was the commander of a centuria, which was the smallest unit of a Roman legion.  The centurion commanded about 100 men, and there were 60 centurions in a legion. The Roman Centurion was often of the humblest origin; he had been promoted from the ranks simply on account of bravery and military efficiency. Thick, hand-forged carbon steel is used for the durable construction of this Roman Imperial Centurion Helmet. Horse hair is used for the 5.5 inch tall plum and dyed red so it made as to give an imposing look with the illusion of height that helped him to appear more commanding. Carbon steel is contoured to the authentic shape of the historical helmet. Layered steel adorns the top. A moveable steel visor is fixed to the front. Around the sides are brass decoration rivets to signify status.

A transverse crest is featured on the front meaning that it ran from side to side across his helmet. It is believed that the centurion wore this type of crest in battle during the early Empire to serve as a visual reference and rallying point for their men. The bottom edge of the Roman Imperial Centurion Helmet is trimmed with brass all the way around. At the back is a carbon steel neck shield designed to fit over a gorget. Each side of the face is further protected with a hinged shielding. Some assembly is required.  Comes slightly oiled to prevent rusting.
