Panem et Circensis

Bread and games was a often used way of conducting politics and influence the masses in ancient Rome. But it did not only function as a propaganda tool ? Romans loved their sport, namely arena battles between gladiators.  Therefore, you could find depictions of them literally everywhere. Not only as graffiti on walls or as statues in the market square, but also as decoration on cups and plates. Thus, if you want to experience what it might have felt like to drink like a Roman, this cup might just be the right thing to you! It is authentically manufactured after historical originals and therefore bears a striking resemblance to cups that were actually used during the classical period of European history.
But the cup at hand does not only serve as a useful drinking container for your own use but also makes for a great and unique gift for any history inclined person. Gladiator Cup Facts
