This Thraex Gladiator Helmet is constructed from 18 gauge brass; the interior is unlined and blackened - included is a separate padded cotton arming cap. The two halves of the face mask are secured with a slot and key pin and both halves of the mask can be removed entirely by taking out the retaining pins which affix the mask to the helmet brim.

A common and popular Gladiator subtype, the Thraex was modeled after expansionist Rome’s encounters with their fierce Thracian foes who lived in modern day Bulgaria. Armed in the ‘’Thracian’’ manner with a small, usually rectangle ‘’parmula’’ shield, a curved sica sword and this encompassing helmet the Thraex gladiator was often paired against the heavy Murmillo gladiator who was styled after a Roman legionary. The Thraex was expected to use skill, guile and the wicked curve of his sword to get past the larger shield of his foe to land a blow. These requirements often made skillful Thraex gladiators among the most entertaining sports combatants of their day.
