This helmet with a mask, separate nose piece, band, ring, and plaque were found, with other bronze armor, in a tomb in northern Greece. The helmet, cast with beaded and incised edges, is of a type possibly developed in the Peloponnese in the 7th century BC and later used in Illyria (a region northwest of Greece) and other foreign lands. The other objects are made of hammered sheet gold.

Laocoön and his sons, also known as the Laocoön Group. Marble, copy after an Hellenistic original from ca. 200 BC. Found in the Baths of Trajan, 1506

“The statue of Laocoön and His Sons also called the Laocoön Group, is a monumental sculpture in marble now in the Vatican Museums, Rome. The statue is attributed by the Roman author Pliny the Elder to three sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus. It shows the Trojan priest Laocoön and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus being strangled by sea serpents.”
