Latin Inscriptions

Description

These four short texts were inscribed on the gravestones of four gladiators in the first, second, or third centuries CE. The inscriptions include what type of gladiator each one was, where he came from, and who paid for the gravestone inscription. “Freedman” or “freedwoman” means that the person was a slave but was later freed by their master.
