This is not a gig actually but we had been filmed by a local TV crew and the thing was broadcasted at the end of April on NDR (North-German Television). Now our webmaster uploaded this film to our website and those of you who understand German could follow this link to watch it:

Morituri te Salutant !

 

Aber das ist geschichtlig gar nicht richtig.

Sadly we have no Gladiatrix reenactors in the states that I am aware of. I would find that very interesting.

Reading Tacitus I came across a type of gladiator I had never heard of before : the 'Crupellarii'.

They were Gallic gladiators who wore full body armour

Indeed the crupellarius is mentioned only once literally. And then there is a little statuette found in France, dating from 1st century AD which is supposedly a crupellarius. Yes, I know that this Hungarian group is having a crupellarius in their program cause I've seen their performance.

Since they are mentioned nowhere else, could they have been a local, typically Gallic variant ?

 

Formosus

 

Yes, that's what the scholars assume.
