Playmobil Roman Gladiators

An addition to my Playmobil Roman line,
5838 Gladiators & Tiger:

These guys are damn cute!

All my Gladiators (4653, 5817, 5838)

Gladiators (Latin: gladiatores, "swordsmen" or "one who uses a sword," from gladius, "sword") were professional fighters in ancient Rome who fought against each other, wild animals, and condemned criminals, often to the death, for the entertainment of spectators. The origin of the gladiatorial games is not known for certain. These fights took place in arenas in many cities from the Roman Republic period through the Roman Empire.
