THE RUDIARIUS GLADIATOR RING: THE MAN IN THE ARENA

Rudiarius [ru-de-á-re-us]: A freed Roman gladiator

Rudiarius is not a name, but a title earned. It was an honorific given to those Roman gladiators who proved their mettle in the arena. For those few warriors who distinguished themselves on the sand of the arena floor—and survived long enough—their reward was the ultimate prize: freedom.

New gladiators swore a sacred oath to die with honor, whatever the circumstances. Whether slaves or criminals, they would endure years of rigorous training—knowing that each battle might be their last. Only the most skilled and resolute combatants outlasted all their competitors, emerging triumphant and with the adulation of the spectators.

In turn, the Rudiarius often became the master—preparing the next wave of gladiators to fight for their freedom…and glory.

RUDIARIUS RING SYMBOLISM

The Rudiarius Skull: Embodies the duality of the gladiator: fighting for life, yet embracing death

Helm: Called a “Cassis Crista,” this large gladiator helmet had a plumed crest, usually made of bronze, and an ornate grill face visor

Spiked Flail Mace: A weapon consisting of a striking head attached to a handle by a flexible rope, strap, or chain

Shanks: A gladiator locked in mortal battle with a lion

Under Gallery: Two steadfast gladiators square off in an arena

    Outstanding Heavy Piece

    Posted by Rico R. on Apr 9th 2022

    This is my latest & greatest piece. Heavy but comfortable. The details of the flails & the brim of the helmet are my favorite features.
