This helmet represents the latest form of the Corinthian helmet type, appearing in the late Archaic period. In the typology by H. Pflug, in: Antike Helme. Sammlung Lipperheide und andere Bestände des Antikenmuseums Berlin, 1988, pp. 87ff., it belongs to the Hermione-group, named after a well-preserved helmet from Hermione in Athens (Pflug, op. cit., p. 91, fig. 32f.).

There were exhibitions entitled “Exhibition of Greek Art, 3000 B.C.-A.D.1938” at the Royal Academy in 1942 and at the Fitzwilliam Museum in 1944. Both catalogue listings include two Corinthian helmets, quite possibly the same in each. In the 1942 catalogue both helmets were lent to the exhibition by Spink & Son, and if one of these is the present helmet, then it seems possible it had originally belonged to Alphonse Kann, who from 1938 was living in England.
