A very high quality roman bronze military helmet carrying handle. This item which dates to circa 3rd century AD, is decorated with the head of Oceanus the titan god and flanked by two dolphins with trident style tails.
Oceanus was a divine figure of personification of the sea and also referred to as Ogen or Ogenis.

This item would have been a private purchase by a high ranking roman soldier and would have demonstrated rank and status.

An incredibly rare item from a private collection in the St.Albans area in the late 1970s.

As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.

Period style: Ancient Roman
Dimension: 13.0 CM In Length.
