As the wikia grows, we need to manage and expand on everything we can, and i have been thinking of a few ways to make sure we stay as high quality as possible.
Since the show is based of historical events, im thinking we need to do what we can to add history to the articles. For example, Roman Legions should have info on who each legion was historically, since i doubt Rome called them "Glabers legion". Since most of these people where real, it shouldn't be to hard to get names.
For larger articles, i see nothing wrong with interlinking our=selfs with wikipedia for some things, like cultures and large articles that can expand on what people can get out of the show. Media has become a way to get people interested in history, and i feel we shou…Read more >
There were parts in the show I loved
I loved the last scene of Gods of the Arena when Gannicus leaves. The soundtrack in that scene is also at the beginning of Spoils of War when Gannicus thinks Donar's dead.
I loved the end of season 3 episode 9 at Crixus' funeral pire, when the rebels are honouring the dead (I don't know why they mentioned Barca or Peitros though, they weren't rebels)
The part in the finale when Spartacus is trying to pick up the purple ribbon is a sad moment, and a powerful one to me

¡Hola! mis hermanos gladiadores.
I'm here once again to bring a new question that for a while I'm doing.
I do not remember where it was that I read that Spartacus was believed he belong the style dimachaerus.
but seek this information in other pages and can not find anything that says that it is believed that it was a dimachaerus.
then my question is:
the creator of the series (Steven S. DeKnight) was to whom he happened to put the chara cter of Spartacus as a Dimachaerus or is there any record of any historian who says that possibly belonged dimachaerus-style?
another question: What other style that you would have liked them possessing the rebel king?
¡Nos veremos en otro momento mis hermanos! Gracias por todo (Thanks for everything)Read more >
I'm new here and I was reading the wiki (which is wonderful by the way. Real great job to everyone here who has contributed) and I like all of the trivia sections for the characters. But I came across something.
In the trivia section of the page on Spartacus, it says that Spartacus has had the most kills out of any character.
This is obvious just watching the series. But, does anyone know the count? A rough estimate?
I think this would be interesting to see how many characters each of the main characters have killed if it is at all possible, especially Spartacus. Anyone want to take on the daunting task of doing this?- Could be split up. Or would it be too much to ask to do? Tell me what you think. Sorry if I am being rude here by joining ask…

hello I'm a new user here and I want to bring a little doubt mine ...
The veteran and is on its end in the series, we see him fight behind Naevia and also is seen behind a brief moment Gannicus, one might suppose that died killed by the Romans who surrounded Gannicus but ...
when we are at the scene of the Apian Way Gannicus right opposite, there is a man who is "old" and with a resemblance to the Veteran.
maybe this man will actually The Veteran and saw us at the end if his death? what do you think?

OK, so some sort of consensus needs to be found amongst us contributors or an Admin needs to make an executive decision about what to do about Correus and Ediscus because these characters already have their own existing pages: Celtillus and Ludovicus.
For the sake of clarity and since I don't know the actor names, I'm going to refer to them in this article as The White Actor (TWA) and Black Actor (TBA)
Let's take them one at a time:
CORREUS aka CELTILLUS played by TWA
- We had previously named TWA "Celtillus" because in the original script there is a character named "Celtillus" who, along with Saxa, helps shoots the ballistae at the end of "Victory". Thus, we called TWA Celtillus.
- However, in Blood Brothers, we see TWA referred to as "Correus…Read more >
So there were a few nict picks and gripes I had with the final season.
At the beginning of Enemies of Rome, it opens with a large battlefield with the rebels fighting Roman soldiers. At first you only notice the rebels who are fighting in the front, but I couldn't help but look at the background characters. I wish these actors could have given a little more effort in making it look like they were actually fighting.
- Even in Spoils of War when Naevia's fighting in the background behind Spartacus, she doesn't look like she's fighting, just casually swinging a plastic sword around (seriously go watch the episode, Naevia looks stupid)
- That was also a problem I found in later episodes. When Crixus is facing Caesar, you have rebels in the background. T…
As most of you may know, the game, Spartacus Legends, has been postponed to December of this year.
While no reason was given as to why this happened, we can only hope this will be a benefit. The two main reason this could have happened are:
- 1: The game had more bugs then they felt acceptable, and felt it would be better for the players to delay the game to make sure it was playable.
- 2: The game is being adapted to be compatible on the newer systems as well as the 360 and PS3. We can hope that this wont affect us in having to buy the Xbox one or PS4 to play this game.
Spartacus legends is still being advertised as a free-to-play game, so that always a good thing.
Also, my laptop busted the other day and is currently jury-ridged to stay on. If i …Read more >
Hey everybody, hope you are all doing well. I was listening through all the soundtracks of the series that are all wonderfully and beautifully done. However, I also took note that there are several tracks that are unreleased and that bothers me because they are so good and I want them on my iPod! I'm curious to see if anyone else has noticed this and was wondering that, if there are enough of us, we could maybe get a hold of Steven S. DeKnight or Joseph Loduca or whoever we need to. Not sure why these tracks weren't included, I'll post some examples and if for some reason if I've overlooked them then I'd appreciate someone letting me know what the track name is and from what season it comes from.

So with the end of War of The Damned comes the end of the Spartacus series. This show was brilliant for what it was, but I unfortunately, was not satisfied with the season as a whole. When I saw the teaser trailer for the season, with Spartacus riding on his horse towards the Romans and smashing into them with that growl at the end, I thought this season was going to be so much different and epic.
First, I understand this show is also a drama, so it needs all that diologue infront of the action. But the season could have used just as much action. I expected a season called War of The Damned to have more battles in it. There was a battle at the beginning of episode 1, and at the end of episodes 3, 8 and 10, with a very slow build up in every ep…Read more >
So I've volunteered myself to change the background because everyone was getting tired of looking at some surfer dude in Roman armor and Agron. I thought maybe after all that we'd like something more subdued where we don't have someone staring back at us while we type, so what do y'all think of this one with the faceless Rebel army. I like it because, as I mentioned, no one is staring at me and also because we wiki contributors are, in a sense, faceless members of Spartacus' army.Read more >
Hey everybody, i figured this is the best way of talking to all of you, despite the fact im pretty sure we all read each-other's wall posts :)
Since the show is done, and all we have left to expect is the game, we need to focus on making sure the wikia is at a high level of quality in every way possible. While most character and episode articles are full and done, we have concerns that i ask you help in any way possible. I have found that group projects are always a good way to get jobs done, so i think we should try to use either this or the Admin:To-Do List to list projects and get them done.
- We need to go through the images here on the wikia. All images should be in use or they are a waste of space. I ask that if you get the chance, to f…
Something I've noticed since joining this site is the non-capitalization of the term "rebels" and it bugs me. This is grammatically incorrect for the most part. Before I became an evil attorney, I received a Masters Degree in American History specializing in the Civil War era, so needless to say I've read and written quite a bit about "Rebel" armies, haha. At any rate, when you are referring to something that is a unique entity, in our case we are usually referring to Spartacus' army, you capitalize it. This goes for both proper nouns (the Rebels launched the attack) and proper adjectives (Agron was a Rebel general). You don't capitalize it when you are using it as a common noun (Grandpa shook his fist and yelled "stop acting like such …Read more >
Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well!
I felt like doing a blog in order to gauge other users on who everyone's favourite hero and villain was! I want to see what it is about some characters that make you all like them. This show is great it outlining both sides of the coin in terms of "good" and "bad" yet even those are tangible. Just a fun little bit about why you like a certain character would be great :)
I'll start mine:
I love Gannicus just because he is he anti-hero and a flawed one at that. One of the most incredible fighters in the series, yet he carries a carefree and witty personality. His growth and character development in the show is aboslutely awesome and I love how it is in his interactions with others, …Read more >
As some of you may have noticed, we are now hosting articles for character weapons. Since we are doing this i wanted to run something buy everybody.
While some weapons are deserving of an article, like Crassus' Sword or Crixus' shield, we do not need to give every weapon, armor piece, or shield and article. So i expect we will not be seeing "Nasirs spear" or "Batiatus' toga" since those are not unique or special.

I loved season 3 it was epic. But I had some dislike about it.
1.) I think Caesar and Crassus should have been much better fighters. Most the fights we saw Caesar he was losing in. He should have atleast been on almost Spartacus level.
2.) I didn't like the Tiberius raping Caesar scene.
3.) Lastly I expected Caesar or Crassus to kill Crixus not Tiberius. A nd the way he Agron with one little stab, they could have done better.Read more >
For those of you who don't know, or those who like to be reminded, Ubisoft is expected to release a new free to play game on Xbox 360 and the PS3 sometime next month (May, 2013)

Fellow screencappers, please do your very best to ONLY post high resolution screencaps if at all possible. The best way to get high res caps is on starzplay.com where they have high definition streaming episodes from every season.
Low resolution screencaps diminish the overall quality of the site and gives the site an amateurish appearance. I'm not an admin, but if I were, I might consider removing low resolution caps for the reasons stated above.Read more >
Personally I'd like to see some spin-off series ; and here are my ideas :
1. A Gannicus "prequel" to "Vengeance" ; about his life while in freedom ; he would probably be a gladiator for hire in the whole Roman Empire ; lots of fans complained about the lacks of "arena" in the last seasons ; it would be a good way to bring back some gladiatoral games.
2. An Oenemaus background : I would really like to see a deeper look at what was shown in Vengeance from his arrival into slavery to the pits to his recruitement by the old Batiatus ; his fight against Theokoles, etc ... It would be great to see the former Doctore being a bit expanded too.
3. A background about Batiatus' father/grand-father : I would love to see his "champions" expanded a lot ; m…Read more >
Ok, so I've seen some posts around the wiki amomg users disagreeing on which characters are superior to the another. I have even seen this list, which I found to be horribly inaccurate. So, I am going to post my own list, and I would like for you to post yours as well. Let's start.
- Theokoles - This is the sole gladiator who has the honor of besting Champion Oenomaus in a single, fair fight. It took the 2 greatest warriors at the time to take him down. Theokoles was able to mortally wound Crixus while fighting Spartacus at the same time, and that deserves credit. One may argue that Theokoles only lost due to plot, but that is the realm of assumption, which I am trying to avoid. Nonetheless, he stands as one of, if not the greatest warriror i…

Hello Spartacus fans.
Our beloved Spartacus series has come to an end. It has been with geat honor to serve as an admin here, as the story of Spartacus will forever be etched in my heart. When I watched the finale, I, like most, had some kind of hope that some of the characters that fell, wouldn't. We all know Spartacus' body was never found, so this had many hoping for his possible escape. In my opinion, his death was a masterpiece. If he had died by Crassus personally, I don't think I would have liked it as much. Even in a crushing defeat, there is still a sense of victory. Gannicus' demise was, I'm sure, a surprise to all of us. He is such a popular character for many of you, that I wish to ask: Were you satisfied with the way he went out? …Read more >
Hey all. With the season Finale of Spartacus tomorrow, I've taken it upon myself to rewatch the entire run of Spartacus so that when tomorrow comes I can bath in the fully glorious and emotional effect of the end of the greatest series I have ever seen.
That being said, having rewatched the series, I found myself wondering a few things and developed a list of questions that I'm hoping might generate some interesting feedback.
1) With the Egyptian being such a deadly fighter, why didn't the romans throw him into the arena? I feel like he would be a pretty good crowd pleaser.
2) I wonder what would have happened if Theokoles had lived and joined Spartacus and his rebels in war of the damned.
3) What Happened to Solonius' slaves after he was ar…Read more >
The title of this episode: Victory, hints one force will overcome the other. Who do you think will be the victors: Romans or Rebels?
Also What main/supporting characters do you think will be killed off? It is the final battle and episode of this much loved series so I'm guessing there will be alot of blood spilt.
My thoughts are
DEAD: Spartacus, Saxa, Lugo, Kore, Sibyl, Nasir
ALIVE: Agron, Castus, Ceasar, Crassus
50/50 : Naevia, Gannicus , LaetaRead more >
So the Finale is finally upon us. Would anyone care to speculate on which characters live and which characters die.
Here is my thoughts
Spartacus, Lugo, Agron, Nasir, Saxa, Kore, Naevia aww hell, every character except Gannicus and his current flame.
Gannicus and his woman, Ceasar, Crassus.
Anyone else care to speculate?Read more >

Has anyone watched this show on this Wiki?

Hey all. I have a question about episode 9 of war of the damned. In the promo, ceaser says that he'll do a fair trade of 500 rebels for Tibereus's life. Everyone seems to think this means Ceaser is wanting Spartacus to end him. Now, while I have no doubt that is really what Ceaser wants, when I heard it, I figured that bargin would be to save Tibereus's life. That seems the more likely outcome to me. I know no one knows right now, but I am just curious if anyone else thinks about it like I do.Read more >
Might as well add this....
So since we have to wait another week regardless for the next episode of War of the Damned, I was hoping to do another Blog. Yes it will entail as one of those "What-If scenarios" but I feel like just putting something out to see what other people may think. Apologies for not coming up with something more but give me some time and I'll cook one up!
Basically it comes down to what if Varro had survived the events that occurred and by some other method Spartacus' eyes were "opened" to the truth and through another way went about starting the revolt. Varro is still Roman, regardless of his gladiator status and I'm wondering if he'd even take part in the revolt and imagine his reaction to the complete hatred of Romans …

If you have not already seen the episode, please do not ready this for it will contain spoliers.
So I've finished watching tonight's episode. I am at a loss for words right now. From the beginning of the episode, we see that the bond between the character's are exploited. There are quite a few scenes with Spartacus and Crixus expressing their brotherly love for one another, along with Crixus and Gannicus, etc. From this, you can assume that something bad is going to happen. Now, fast forward to the battle. We see that Crixus and his army defeat a commander's (his name escapes me) legions and are well on their way towards Rome. Now, it's the following battle that leaves me at a loss for words. We knew Crixus is going to be defeated, but we d…Read more >
Hello Spartacus fans. Ok so we are nearing the final 3 episodes of War of The Damned. Many rebels have fallen, Spartacus and his army are nearly finished. Episode 1, 4 and 6 are the only ones that I personally like, the others were dissapointing or had wasted potential. I thought a season named War of The Damned, well........, would have war, battles, guess not.
We are all aware what Crassus does to the survivors at the end and why do you think he does this to the rebels. Is it because Tiberius is killed, thats just my theory.Read more >
It's clear that not a lot of the rebels like Castus because he is Cilician, yet in the latest episode, Mors Indecepta, we see him released and allowed to join their ranks by Agron, albeit reluctantly and only due to Nasir, the only person who seems to have any respect for Castus.
My question for everyone is, because historically Castus was a rebel leader, will he be featured more prominetly in upcoming epidodes? We only have 3 more episodes left after all. Personally, I would like to see Castus become more featured and just see what kind of character he could become in the rebellion. After I saw him fight alongside Agron I could see a sliver of acknowledgement from the German.
What I say now is just my complete opinion here and speculation o…Read more >
Unfortunate news about spoilers. Recently, the War of the Damned OST has been released on Amazon, which contains tracks with heavy, obvious spoilers about characters endings. If you do not wish for these spoilers, then avoid the soundtrack at all costs. Again, avoid the soundtrack at all costs if you do not wish to spoil major events.
Steven DeKnight is particularly furious about the situation, but Liam McIntyre and Barry Duffield have noted that in case somebody has spoiled certain events to you, that the final episodes still have twists and turns at will surprise you, and that the titles may not seem what they seem. Still, it is an unfortunate event, and a majorly disastrous turn of events.
Be careful out there.Read more >
Both Donar and Caesar are two of my favourite characters as of War of the Damned. Because I'm in Canada I don't get to see new episodes until every Sunday. This fight, however, intrigued me and I had some thoughts on it. From what I saw in the fight Donar appeared to be greatly wounded and was wondering if anyone else would think that, had Donar not have been so wounded, could he have defeated Caesar? Keep in mind I am not belittling Caesar and his fighting abilities, but from what I saw is Donar showing great skill in this fight and with that wound he was held back.Read more >
So this is all my opinion, but I find Spartacus is taking council and advice from Gannicus a lot more now than from Crixus and Agron. Clearly both Crixus and Agron have become extremely cruel. aggressive and merciless. In some circumstances it's slightly reasonable, but I find that Spartacus sees this and is now turning to Gannicus because Gannicus seems to be becoming a very moral character.
Does anyone else see anything similar in this or have a seperate theory on a subject similar to this one?Read more >

Warning: this review contains spoilers
In the premier episode of Season 3 (Spartacus: War of the Damned) we return to Spartacus' rebellion as he marches on Rome. At the beginning of the episode we find that the action has jumped ahead from where Season 2 left off.
If the first episode of the new season delivers one thing, it is this; the unveiling and development of a devious new antagonist to face off with the mighty Spartacus and his growing army of rebelling slaves. Enemies of Rome introduces us to Crassus, a wily and complex villain. With Glaber out of the way, it is imperative that the show quickly establishes a believable and interesting villain.
However, before Spartacus is given the opportunity to face off against Crassus, he must first d…
