A gladiator in the Cyrene Gladiator Arena.

Gladiators were armed combatants, typically slaves, who entertained audiences throughout the Roman Republic and Roman Empire in violent confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals, and condemned criminals.


Though not strictly gladiators in the traditional sense, in the 5th century BCE Greece, there was an Arena in Pephka, Greece which boasted to have no slaves, no criminals, but only warriors among its fighters.[1]

Gladiators fought in a variety of locations, ranging from a city's back alleys right through to colossal amphitheatres such as the Colosseum in Rome, or the Cyrene and Krokodilopolis arenas in the 1st century BCE Kyrenia and Egypt, respectively.[2]
