Iron Panoply based on Vergina Royal Tomb

336 B.C.E.

A lot of the discovered items from Vergina are unique in the Hellenistic archaeological context, among them an impressive set of iron armour, which is attributed to King Philip II of Macedon himself. The iron torso armour is richly ornamented with gilded embellishments, and alongside it archaeologists found a matching iron helmet of Macedonian-Phrygian type.
