The Carthaginian helmet ("Boeotian"?, "Phrygian"?, "Thraco-Makedonian"?) before restoration.
That helmet may be the first example of Carthaginian armour yet found !

arrivederci,
Emilio

Giorno, Emilio. I hate being that guy that ruin the mood of excitement, but I believe this helmet most likely just severely damaged helmet of Pilos type.

Check out this late Pilos (Axel Guttmann 454), for example, probably originated from southern Italy region judging by the small bumps in the front gap of the cheeckpieces. That one is similar to one you posted above.
