Spartacus, the leader of a rebellion of gladiators and slaves that escalated to a full-scale war in the years 73-70. n 73, seventy-eight gladiators managed to escape from the fighting school of Gnaeus Lentulus Batiatus at Capua. According to Plutarch, they were only armed with choppers and spits, which they had found in a kitchen. However, they soon discovered a transport of gladiatorial weapons. From now on, they were heavily armed and ready to fight any Roman soldiers!
This incredible 1/4th scale statue sculpted by Maxence Fleuret pay homage to the gladiatorial days of Spartacus, the slave, gladiator and general who defied the mighty Roman Empire.
