Code: 379 Dimensions: 11x6cm 4.34x2.37 in Weight: 220gr Material: BRONZE Color: GREEN/GOLD OXIDIGATION History The Myrmidons or Myrmidones (Greek: Μυρμιδόνες) were a legendary people of Greek history. They were very brave warriors: trained and commanded by Achilles, as described in Homer's Iliad. Their eponymous ancestor was Myrmidon, a king of Thessalian Phthia, who was the son of Zeus and "wide-ruling" Eurymedousa, a princess of Phthia. An etiological myth of their origins, expanding upon their etymology — the name in Classical Greek was interpreted as "ant-people", from μυρμηδών (murmedon) "ant's nest" and that from μύρμηξ (murmex) "ant" — was first mentioned by Ovid, in Metamorphoses: in Ovid's telling, King Aeacus of Aegina, Achilles' grandfather, pleaded with Zeus to populate his country after a terrible plague. Zeus said his people would number as the ants on his sacred oak, and from the ants sprang the people of Aegina, the Myrmidons. This is a handmade Myrmidon style helmet made in Greece, from 100% bronze using the traditional “lost wax”technique.This is the same technique used by the ancient Greeksto create bronze sculptures and arsenal.The prototype which it wasmade by is a museum exhibit.
