it was used by the Greeks too. Like a lot other helmets like Thracians for example and at the same time others like Thracians used Greek helmets like Chalcidian and Corinthian

Yeah, some time after I posted that comment I learned that it was one of many helmets used by greeks too. But unlike the thracian one (which as far as I can remember was remodeled by the greeks to be slightly different from the original), the illyrian helmet was copied/used with the same model so to speak.

The corinthian helmet became obsolete after the Peloponnesian War but there were many others like the thracian, the greco-thracian, the phrygian, the chalchidian and the "pilos helmet" used by spartan warriors later on. The illyrians only had like two or three variants, like their open-faced helmet (the one in this artwork) and the pot helmet and I think there was a third one but I can't remember for sure.

Thank you for telling me tho, as I wasn't completely sure about that helmet being used by greeks as well!

well the Greeks did trade A LOT of equipment with the Thracians especailly in Northen Greece (Chalkidiki,Thessaly,Macedonia) and Athens but its true that the Illyrians didnt took any Greek variation although I think the Greeks intruduced them to the Hoplon shield while before that they had Celtic like shields.
