By the late 7th and early 6th centuries B.C., the Corinthian helmet was the most popular choice in headgear, combining an elegant form with maximum protection, leaving just a small area of the warrior's face exposed. The most prevalent form to survive has been dubbed the Myros type after an example found with the name inscribed on it. The type adopted the peaked dart that divided the cheek- and neck-guards, as opposed to the earlier prototype on which the cheek pieces and neck guard were all the same length. This was perhaps adopted from the less popular Illyrian helmet, which was used concurrently (see P. Connolly, Greece and Rome at War, p. 60). For related examples, see nos. 26-28 in A. Bottini, et al., Antike Helme.
