Ancient Corinthian helmet was found after excavations in Russia

The archaeological excavations on the Taman Peninsula, southwest Russia and the northern Black Sea coasts brought to light an ancient Corinthian helmet, in good shape. It is a Corinthian helmet of the “Ermioni” team, which dates back to the first quarter of the 5th century BC.

The helmet along with other objects of the same era came to light from the archaeological work of the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IA RAS), which has been attempting for three years in the necropolis outside the village of Volna where there are about 600 ancient tombs.

The northern shores of the Black Sea had been colonized by Greeks, who already in the 7th and 6th centuries BC. they built a number of independent states along the coast. Until the 5th century BC, the cities were part of the Bosporus kingdom, which became Roman in the 1st century BC.
