Updated Gladiator Reasearch - Development and Typology
« on: September 22, 2016, 06:06:29 PM »
Updated Chronological research, classification
and reconstructions, based on theories regarding the evolution of Roman gladiatorial games
and equipment. Mostly based on the research of Konstantin Nossov, Silvano Mattesini,
and displayed here with artwork by Angus Mcbride, Johnny Shumate, Steve Noon, Sandra Delgado,
Peter Dennis, Giorgio Albertini, Vladimir Golubev, Silvano and Marcella Mattesini as well as others.
I hope its useful to both research and modding  :wink: enjoy...

Very interesting and useful, thanks!

You could say that he finds hungarian tanks riveting.

Informative and concise. Bravo. As for the poll, does it have any value other than your curiosity?

I've always loved the Murmillo. They got such cool armour and their weapon combos are always cool, one of the most haunting and iconic gladiators.

Can't see the face though, serves to dehumanise them a bit too much.

I'm personaly a fan of the Arbelas  :D so far I see the Myrmillo
to be the most popular choice  :ohdear: and still no love of the Threax or Provocator?!
 :shifty: where did I read that before?  :mrgreen: oh!

"Domitian preferred a myrmillo to any other type of gladiator,
and even threw a man to the dogs for speaking out in favor
of a thraex
!" Suetonius, Domitian, 10.1

Flamma, was awarded the rudis four times!!!!  :wink:
but chose to remain a gladiator, his gravestone epitaph reads thus...

"Flamma, secutor, lived 30 years, fought 34 times, won 21 times,
fought to a draw 9 times, defeated 4 times, a Syrian by nationality.
Delicatus made this for his deserving comrade-in-arms
"

Ah Flamma; a great gladiator but he was banned from the forum, for he was always stirring up arguments and insulting people.
