- "Barnabas told me about The Arena. I should give it a go."
Throughout the decades the Arena was widely popular, attracting both spectators and fighters throughout Greece. Occasionally, Maion and Skoura sent out letters to notable mercenaries, like Talos the Stone-Fist. The Arena also drew in Belos, a famous Spartan champion and a member of the Heroes of the Cult branch of the Cult of Kosmos.
Around 431 BCE, the Spartan misthios Kassandra learned of the arena after finding an invitation on the corpse of Talos, a mercenary hired to kill her. Kassandra subsequently participated in the arena's challenges during the Peloponnesian War, meeting both Maion and Skoura.
- In The Art of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the place is simply called the 'Battle Arena'. Instead of Maion and Skoura, however, it is connected to Xenia.
