I would agree with Pauly here as the inscription would imply that the armour had a secondary decorative purpose. The lack of air holes on the left hand side of the face visor would also support jousting use, since that's the direction where the majority of exploding lance fragments would come from, thus additional coverage would be preferred over more ventilation.
