      Did humans have eyes that close together in ancient times?

      Naaaah, this helmet is ceremonial, most like for a funerary purpose. Once adorned with horsehair, feathers or metal animal horns, this decorative helmet was certainly not functional.

      Did you notice the engraved ringlet curls at the helmet’s ‘hairline’?

      Helmet, 400 - 375 B.C., Greek. J. Paul Getty Museum.
