Designed entirely in Italy, with the professional consultation of local archeologists, this is the first time that 1:6 scale gladiators are presented in 100% historically accurate form. Their armor and weapons are based on original artifacts discovered in the ancient city of Pompeii, Italy.
The Retiarius, literally "net-man" or "net-fighter" in Latin, was a Roman gladiator who fought with equipment styled on that of a fisherman: a weighted net (rete, hence the name), a three-pointed trident (fuscina or tridens), and a dagger (pugio). The retiarius was lightly armoured, wearing an arm guard (manica) and a shoulder guard (galerus).
