The Minerva Helm is a Helm found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is one of the prizes that can be won in the Lucky Medal Fountain in Lemuria. Being a Helmet, it can be equipped by Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers.
The Minerva Helm increases the wearer's defense by 43 and maximum PP by 20. It can be bought for 8700 coins and sold for 6525 coins.
At first glance the Minerva Helm is a valuable piece of equipment, since the Adepts that can use it have low PP ratings in their default classes. However, increasing maximum PP by 20 points pales in comparison to the PP multipliers of equipment like the Adept's Helm. Even more valuable is the PP recovery of the Crown of Glory, another prize from the Lemurian Spring, which essentially gives the wearer limitless PP. Still, these pieces of equipment offer less base defense than the Minerva Helm (especially in the case of the Adept's Helm).
In the Roman Pantheon, Minerva was the equivelent of the Greek Athena, being the godess of Warriors, Wisdom, and Medicine, as well as other assorted things.
