Greek Warriors Bronze Helmet.

A Greek bronze helmet, covered with gold leaf and decorated with snakes, lions and a peacock’s tail (or palmette), was discovered in the waters of Haifa Bay in Israel.
The helmet dates back around 2,600 years and likely belonged to a wealthy Greek mercenary who took part in a series of wars, immortalized in the Bible, which ravaged the region at that time.
Archaeologists believe that he likely fought for an Egyptian pharaoh named Necho II.
