Helmets for the infantry came in various types. The earliest standard hoplite helmet was the Corinthian helmet, developed around 600BCE. Later, this was replaced by the Phrygian helmetand Chalcidian helmet, which were lighter and did not impair the wearer's vision or hearing so severely. Helmets often had a horsehair crest, for decorative purposes and as an additional level of protection. The Boeotian helmetwas commonly used by cavalry troops due to their need for unimpeded vision and hearing. Helmets were mainly used for protecting the head but leaving the eyes, mouth and nose unprotected.
