Category talk:Ancient Greek helmets

Major mistake guys.These are helmets of Greek origin but i.e The type Illyrian helmet originated in the Peloponnese and is Greek at 7th century bc the term "illyrian" is conventional just like all terms for helms. Terms such as Illyrian and attic are used in archaeology for convenience to denote a particulat type of helmet and do not imply its origin.
