Marble relief from Halicarnassus commemorating either the release from service or the discharge after a draw of two female gladiators, Amazonia and Achillea. They are armed, and advancing to attack, with swords and shields. They stand on a platform, and below on each side is the head of a spectator. Inscribed above and on the platform. They are shown with the same equipment as male gladiators, but without helmets. According to several contemporary eye-witnesses, women also performed in the Roman arena. According to the biographer Suetonius, the emperor Domitian (reigned AD 81-96) made women fight by torchlight at night. #gladiator #gladiators #secutor #retiarius #thraex #secutor #provocator #hoplomachus #ancientrome #romanempire #spqr #spartacus #archaeology #history #antiquity #classicalantiquity #gladius #martialarts #historicaleuropeanmartialarts #hema #trident #colloseum #amphytheatre #games #rome #arena #bloodandsand #fight #combat #ancienthistory #romanhistory
