Blog Number 42 - Frank Miller's '300' Corinthian helmet

The cover of the 5th comic book in the Frank Miller's '300' series shows a battered Corinthian-type helmet worn by one of the 300 Spartiates. To the right of the comic is one of the helmets in my collection which I purchased several years ago and which most closely resembles the helmet which was illustrated by Lynn Varley.

The distinction made between King Leonidas & the other Spartan warriors is that his helmet is the only one with the horse-hair crest.

Do you think that only King Leonidas will have a crest on his helmet, or do you think the other Spartiates will as they did in the movie 'The 300 Spartans'?

i play a sparatn in the movie, the helmet of the spartans does not have crest on it. As of Leonidas i havent seen him on set yet, so i dont know how his helmet will look.
