Diotimos is a former slave of Laurus who escaped and became a rebel in Spartacus' army.


Diotimos is a slender man of average height. He has short, graying hair and appears to be of middle-age. 


Diotimos is a shady man and sees opportunity in the rebel's camp but also acknowledges that the people there need help and that the big man on the hill needs to take better consideration about how things really are in the rebels camp. Despite this, however, he is a man of honor who does wish to fight for freedom.

War of the DamnedEdit

Once a slave on the coast, Diotimos had left to join Spartacus and the rebels in freedom, though not as a fighter, but rather as a sutler for Spartacus' rebel army. Diotimos hands out scraps meat to starving lower rebels when he can, but is secretive about it, using the carcass of a dead horse and such to provide what he

can when he can to those in most of need. Spartacus enters his tent spotting him handing out meat from a horse (The horse was killed in battle and was actually Spartacus'). Diotimos, like many slaves, doesn't recognize Spartacus and mistakes him as just another soldier. He expresses his own distaste

of how things are in the camp and that Spartacus himself needs to do something before the rebels and escaped slaves fall to hunger and colder weather. 

After he learns that the man he was talking to the entire time was in fact Spartacus, he quickly begins to apologize and fears for himself but is later reassured by Spartacus that he is free and that he should speak his mind and to continue to do whatever he can to help everyone else in camp.

Diotimos sparrs with Naevia, and is easily bested with his lack of training. Spartacus summons him to take about Sinuessa en Valle, the city he escaped from, and gives them the information

on its entrances.

As the rebels take over the city, Diotimos returns to the home of his former Dominus and finds Sibyl and the other slaves in the corner of the room. Diotimos is then stabbed in the back of the neck by Laurus before Gannicus slices his head in half. When Naevia arrives, he asks her if his dominus is dead, and says that he will meet the man in the afterlife.
