Quick overview:

Late Roman Cavalry


The Late Roman helmet was a type of combat helmet of late antiquity used by soldiers of the late Roman army. It was characterized by the possession of a bowl made up of two or four parts, united by a longitudinal ridge.
The Late Roman army took a radical departure with its helmets in the late 3rd Century - the Gallic-Italic helmet was abandoned for the Intercisa and Spangenhelm. These helmets were copied by the Romans after conflict with the Sassanid Persians and the Sarmatians. These helmets may have been adopted because they were easier to make - the dome being several riveted pieces as opposed to a single piece of well-formed metal. The late Roman army was a mixed conscript and mercenary force, a highly unpopular departure from the well compensated, often volunteer forces of the ‘’Marian’’ Legion. These large numbers of men would need to be equipped en-masse by the increasingly cash-strapped coffers of the later, over-extended Empire.
