Sorry for my eventual ignorance, but why is a Roman helmet called a Trojan? It is true that the ancestral and legendary forefather of the Roman people is Aeneas, the Trojan prince who fled the burning of Troy with his kid Ascanius, but I fail to see the connection in your, otherwise, excellent drawing/painting.
