2nd century AD
Notice the development of the helmet seen in the 1st century AD has now been taken yet further. The neckguard by now is massive. So too are the impact rims on the forehead and at the ear holes.
This here may well be a more ceremonial outfit, as it seems to offer little serious protection. The second century legionary didnít differ very substantially from his better known predecessor from the first century.
