2,500-year-old Greek warrior helmets were discovered by archaeologists at Italy’s Acropolis Ruins

Officials said Tuesday that archaeologists in southern Italy uncovered ancient warrior helmets and the ruins of a painted brick wall at a site that could have been a forerunner of a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena.

According to the cultural ministry, during the recently completed excavation at Velia, scholars discovered a pair of good-condition helmets, the remnants of a house, vases with the Greek inscription for “sacred,” and metal pieces of what could have been weapons.

Greek soldiers defeated Etruscan forces and their Carthaginian allies in the 6th-century B.C. naval battle of Alalia.Velia, a part of Magna Graecia, is known for being the birthplace of Parmenides and Zeno, as well as an ancient Greek school of philosophy.

Velia’s settlement was enclosed by a wall and occupied the area’s highest part, or acropolis, as well as slopes. Elea was the ancient name for the city.

Velia was founded by colonists from Asia Minor around 540 B.C. The discoveries during the Velia excavation, according to Franceschini, emphasized the importance in investing in archaeological research in order to uncover “vital aspects of Mediterranean history.”
