They were very brave warriors: trained and commanded by Achilles, as described in Homer's Iliad. Their eponymous ancestor was Myrmidon, a king of Thessalian Phthia, who was the son of Zeus and "wide-ruling" Eurymedousa, a princess of Phthia. An etiological myth of their origins, expanding upon their etymology — the name in Classical Greek was interpreted as "ant-people", from μυρμηδών (murmedon) "ant's nest" and that from μύρμηξ (murmex) "ant" — was first mentioned by Ovid, in Metamorphoses: in Ovid's telling, King Aeacus of Aegina, Achilles' grandfather, pleaded with Zeus to populate his country after a terrible plague. Zeus said his people would number as the ants on his sacred oak, and from the ants sprang the people of Aegina, the Myrmidons. This is a handmade Myrmidon style helmet on base made in Greece, from 100% bronze using the traditional “lost wax” technique. This is the same technique used by the ancient Greeks to create bronze sculptures and arsenal. The base of the helmet is pure black marble from Edessa, Greece. The prototype which it was made by is a museum exhibit. The museum color is given through the process of oxidization Shipping: Handling time may take up to 10 days because the item is made after it is purchased.
