In 2014, a citizen of the village Alexandru Ioan Cuza, discovered in the waters of Siret river a Greek helmet of Corinthian type. Without realizing the importance of the discovery, the citizen took the helmet home. Although he seems to have had no knowledge of the value of the object, the citizen allowed an acquaintance to photograph it and post the images on social media. These photos led to a criminal investigation which led to the identification of the finder and the recovery of the helmet six years later. The artefact was recovered and included into the national heritage, being stored into the collection management of „Moldova” National Museum Complex of Iași. The helmet is made of bronze, in which traces of lead (Pb) and iron (Fe) were identified, and it also has traces of gold. It is whole, but it has numerous marks and bends, some due to the fact that is was dragged by the river waters, others due to blows with a hard body. The general state of preservation is good.
