Great pics! Thanks! That Knossos helmet is actually what I think is being depicted on the Warrior Vase --with horns.

Hi,

Here are pictures of Heraklion made during our last trip in 2015. On May 22, we fly to Crete again.

The form of the bowl reminds me of some kegelhelms; the same form translated into a multi-piece construction:

Pfft, you've got Kegelhelms on the brain, Todd! (Not saying that's a *bad* thing!) It's a Late Bronze/Early Iron Age cap helmet, down to the cheekpiece shape.

Of course now I'm not finding the cheekpieces I'm thinking of, though the ones on the Knossos helmet actually look more ROMAN. Definitely something wonky about this boy, or at least about its supposed date. It's a one-piece bowl, by the way.

Cool hat, though! Thanks for the photos.

It is certainly one of those! Just always looking for continuity or transitional pieces. Heck, I even think the Warrior Vase helmets are bell-type helmets; Modlinger doesn't think that they are. Modlinger includes the Knossos helmet in the bell helmet typology but notes it is only one of two examples with the plume holder riveted in place; the northern pieces have the plume holder cast in place.
