A reconstruction of the late Roman iron spangenhelm from Der-el-Medinah, Egypt. Two helmets of this type are known, the second also fron Egypt, is now housed in the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden, Holland. These helmets are believed to be the forerunners of the 'Baldenheim' type bronze and iron spangenhelms of which over two dozen have been found. (Photograph: K. R. Dixon)
