Barbute – Italian infantry helmet of XV century. Has a large extent-face at the expense of developed cheel closing tabs. Y-shaped cut of some of the XV century copies barbuts antique helmets hoplites (Sorinphian barbute). There are two possible explanations for the name, literally meaning “bearded” (Italian Barba – beard): helmet “with a beard”, or, due to the tabs, closing his cheeks, “helm, beneath which protrudes the owner’s beard”.
