The Rudiarius Kinetic Pendant: Watch the Battle Unfold

Kinetic [ki-net-ic]: of, or relating to, motion

From the front, the Rudiarius gladiator gazes from his helm with a warrior's resolve. But the back of the pendant holds a secret for its wearer: peer through the Colosseum's stone arches to witness the chaos of battle. Spin the rotating barrel, and the gladiatorial scene unfolds: a chariot speeding into the fray, war horses snorting. Man-to-man combat, wielding sword and shield, trident and net. Each gladiator locked in a fight for their survival—and their freedom.

No freed Roman Gladiator survived the arena without having an extraordinary story to tell. And now, with the Rudiarius Kinetic Pendant, you can watch the action of the battlefield unfold.

Rudiarius Kinetic Pendant Symbolism  

Rudiarius [ru-de-á-re-us]: A Roman gladiator who was granted his freedom

Helm – The "Cassis Crista" is a large bronze gladiator helmet with a plumed crest and an ornate 'grill' face visor

The Rudiarius Skull – Illustrates the gladiator's stark reality: facing death with every battle in the hopes of earning his freedom

Barrel – Spin the silver barrel on the back of the pendant, and watch a gladiatorial battle scene unfold

Tridents – Called "fascinas," gladiators used these three-pronged jabbing weapons in the arena to strike from a distance, causing maximum damage

The Rudiarius Lion – Appearing on the helm's crest, the lion motif is carried over from both the Rudiarius Ring and Rudiarius Band

Rudis Swords – Flanking the gladiator, these wooden swords were ceremoniously awarded to the winner of a gladiatorial fight

Chains – Encircling the Rudiarius, the chains represent the gladiator's enslavement
