This paper follows the iconography of the 12th century BC Philistine ‘feathered helmets’ from the Medinet Habu reliefs in Egypt to Cyprus, the Levant and the Aegean, establishing key components of the helmet and its decoration. Possible material remains of such helmets found in 12th century Greece are then compared with the iconographic evidence.
