Roman circus beakers with gladiators
The glory of the ancient gladiators
The games that took place in Roman amphitheatres were a central pillar of Roman society.
Inside the arena, a host of theatrical pieces, sports exhibitions and executions took place. But the famous gladiator fights are uppermost in people’s minds.
Gladiators were the real stars of Roman society. The masses could identify with the rise and fall of individual fighters. Many gladiators that started off life as slaves and were sold to a Ludus (a school for gladiators) were even fighting for their freedom. These Roman circus beakers portray, in the style of the Roman artist, a fight between one gladiator and multiple wild animals. Armed with a shield and whip, the design of the fighter on the Roman circus beaker is a real work of art.
