Kegel Type
A simple Kegelhelm

The Kegelhelm (German: "cone helm") or Kegel type is a type of helmet. It is an open-faced helmet of roughly conical shape, sometimes with extensions at the sides to protect the cheeks, or a crest-holder on top. It was made of bronze, sometimes in several pieces. It was the progenitor of many Greek helmets,[1] especially the "Illyrian" type helmet. It did not outlast the eighth century BC.
