Hi everyone, my first post and having some trouble registering (Emails are not being sent to me with password so have to stay as a guest?)
My limited information, all gleaned from books, is the one given above that artistic license helped people work out who was who on the column. My books are getting a little old now, much like me, but it seems that up to the point at which they were written only one brow plate and one cheek piece that may have come from a Roman Attic helmet had been identified by an expert, albeit in the 70's. I'm a fan of the less uniform approach to armies of this period, with auxiliary troops being given access to the pilum and scutum, and Attic helmets would just offer me more variation.I'll be using an eclectic mix of figures when i get round to the Roman troops to ally with my Pontics, and I just wish there were a few mail shirted legionaries bodies in plastic. References for EIR are much better than for the Pontic armies, with some of the warriors relying on brief entries in Xenophon's Annabasis... So yeah, go Roman Attic lids.......
I'm sure we can manage a sprue of metal Attic-helmeted heads in the near future...Cheers,Paul
