A galea is a Roman soldier's helmet. Most of the helmets used by legionaries had a crest holder. The crests were usually made of plumes or horse hair. Originally, Roman helmets were influenced by the neighboring Etruscans, people who utilized the "Nasua" type helmets. The Greeks in the south also influenced Roman design in the early history of Rome. On the front of the helmet , about 3" above the rim is a protrusion protecting the forehead. This was designed to prevent sword blows from penetrating the helmet and causing head injuries. The rear of the helmet had a guard that protected the neck from sword blows.
