No, not Russell Crowe.

There were lots….this will help.

I nominate the Retiarius; the net man.
I imagine they were fast, slender & quite cunning: much like me.

Your favourite?

Winston Smith31 Aug 2015 6:14 a.m. PST

Retiarius. Of course!

Huscarle31 Aug 2015 6:16 a.m. PST

Gladiatrix for me, with an honourable mention for the Dimachaerus.

Sir Walter Rlyeh31 Aug 2015 6:35 a.m. PST

First off, I love the idea of the poll. Secondly, y'all like retiarii, seriously? I am a fan of the heavies. Let's face it, are you really a Gladiator if you don't use a gladius? Go, Samnites!

"We who are about to die salute you!"

I don't have a favorite. I'd only be at the arena watching the "spectacle" because the emperor ordered me to attend….

Hoplomachus all the way---classic what you expect look.

One vote for ursis and leonibus!

Pictors Studio31 Aug 2015 9:21 a.m. PST

Hoplomachus is my favourite. Spear, shield and sword. What could go wrong.

skippy000131 Aug 2015 9:26 a.m. PST

Dimacha-Dim-the guy with two swords.

Gladiatrix-the only historical reason for bikini armor.

Mako1131 Aug 2015 11:00 a.m. PST

Retiarius. Of course!

Another Retiarius vote. When playing imaginary superheroes with my youngest, this is my superhero name.

Ivan DBA31 Aug 2015 5:15 p.m. PST

Thracian, all the way.

Myrmillo and Secutor. Secutor because I always loved the helmet

Mute Bystander01 Sep 2015 3:58 a.m. PST


Lasso/Reata, and dagger. Yeeha!

Or a Sagittarius. Horse and Bow. More Yeeha!
