The Gladiator, thought to be of Etruscan origin, was an entertainer, facing predators, criminals and other gladiators in the arenas of ancient Rome. While often originating from the lower classes and existing in marginalized segments of Roman society, they were celebrated across the extent of the Roman Empire as symbols of power and strength, and commemorated in various forms of artwork.
