Iron Thorax based on Prodromi Grave

290 to 270 B.C.E.

The cuirass from the Prodromi grave was fitted with golden decorations. The way it is shaped indicates that it belonged to a cavalryman, because it allows the wearer to sit comfortably sit on horseback

The reconstructed cuirass was only smoothed by stroking it with a hammer after the forging, but not polished, which is why it retained the black iron look. We can't say if this would have been the case for the original, because of too heavy corrosion.
