Aeolus, do you mean only from antiquity or do you just mean old by "ancient" since you put a picture of a Viking helmet?

Its not entirely myth. Mostly Norse priests among them wore headgears with horns in their religious ceremonies. Strangely i read somewhere that Thracians wore helmets with horns too.

Some Turkish helmets.Note that; because most warriors wrapped a white kerchief and made it look like a turban,most European "historians" believed that Turks were unarmoured.

One of my favourites. Attick style hellenistic helmet (2-3rd century BC). It looks almost modern!

The helmets above are the "vikso" helmets.  I have an article from the Acta Archaeologia somewhere about them.  

As for "Viking Age" helmets, I've heard of two:  The first is the Gjermundr Helm--I have info on that as well, but for a quick reference see James Grahms-Campbell's "Viking Artefacts: a Select Catalogue" (1980).  The second I have read about in passing in "Rus Vikings" (2005) by Duczky. I have no other documentation than that, but apparently it was found in the early 20th century by someone named Sauzon, or something like that (the publication of is from 1903, and is extremely rare in the US ).

Other infromation can be gleaned from representational (pictorical) sources.  The Gotland stones.  Some carvings.

By the Way, what source stated that priest's of the vikings wore horned ceremonial helmets?  Adam of Bremin?

Mord.

errr...left turn at vinland?
