This is the headpiece of the traditional costume from Macedonia, Greece. Notice how much it resembles an ancient Greek helmet? According to the legend, while Alexander the Great was on an expedition, his kingdom was attacked. The men he had left behind retreated, but the women did not. They were the ones who defended his kingdom and won the battle. When he came back he presented them with helmets as a symbol of honour. Women in the area proudly wear it ever since
