Statue of female gladiator found

Recommended Posts

I didn't see this anywhere, so I thought I would share it.


A small bronze statue dating back nearly 2,000 years may be that of a female gladiator, a victorious one at that, suggests a new study.


If confirmed the statue would represent only the second depiction of a woman gladiator known to exist.

I, too, doubt that this statue depicts a gladiatrix. It reminds me more of the Bikini girls from the mosaic of Piazza Armerina on Sicily. They are doing gymnastics, and this stauette reminds me of a woman cleaning herself after having performed gymnastics. But gladiatura sells, gymnastics don't :hammer:
