This Bronze helmut which is now at the National War Historical Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria was found in a tomb buried along with its owner around 500 BC in Thrace, north of the Hellespont. The narrow eye sockets and overlapping nose guards were trademarks of Corinthian style armor found throughout the Agaean world. It was usually adorned with a crest of dyed horsehair. The helmut made it hard to hear and hard to see on either side but it protected the head. The rising power of the Persians with Darius and Xerxes provoked  mass production in metal working shops near the sanctuary of Hephaistos, the patron god of smiths. The short sword and the lance were the soldiers principal weapons during this time period.

Ancient Battles
Minoan Double Axe 1600 BC. Herakleion Museum, Crete. This double axe, believe it or not, was the holiest of ancient Minoan religious symbols and its presence consecrated shrines in Cretan homes and palaces. They were used by priests to kill sacrificial bulls in rites to propitiate the mother goddess.
Ancient Religions
The greek god of the sea, Poseidon, lifting his hand to balance as he prepares to throw a trident or lightning rod. The Greeks trusted that on the water their fate rested with Poseidon. The home waters around Greece were the Aegean Sea which was dotted with islands and headlands and the ancient sailors told many stories of its fierce storms and whirlpools brought about by Poseidon.
