Helmets from the Roman period found in Serbia

Two gold-plated beautifuly decorated Roman helmets, with gems, pearls and glass paste ornaments and Latin and Greek inscriptions on the edges, 4th century AD.

They were discovered in 1955 by a woman in the field in Berkasovo, Srem region, northern Serbia.




One at the right has Greek inscription, and the one at the left Latin inscriptions at the edges saying – “VICIT (LIC)INIANA”.

They probably belonged to cavalry officers of emperor Licinius, who was defeated in Battle of Cibalae, against emperor Constantine I in 314 or 316 AD.

These pieces are considered to be amongst the most beautiful Roman helmets ever found.
