Gladiators who took part in the games were:
House of Batiatus:Edit
- 14 other unknown Gladiators
- Gnaeus was originally set to fight in the Primus against Crixus but was taunted by Spartacus and thrown face first into a pole, injuring him and taking him out of the games.
The Morning games started with the lowest ranking Gladiators fighting to prepare the crowd for the main games.
- Varro vs Unknown
The afternoon matches, along with a number of minor games beforehand.
The rules were simple:
- No missio
- Fight to the death
ResultsEditVarro had survived his battle. From the looks of him, it was a heated bout. Due to Varro fighting in one of the first matches, he wouldn't have killed his opponent.
In the Primus, Spartacus attacked Crixus without being given the command to start the match. Spartacus attacks Crixus aggressively trying to end the bout quickly but is unable to find a weakness in Crixus' fighting. Crixus, laughing the whole time finally gets serious and knocks Spartacus down and strikes him several times on his helmet. Crixus finally wins after a fairly quick match and holds Spartacus, waiting for Judgement from the editor. Against the rules, Spartacus raises missio prompting the editor, who at this point is Batiatus, to show mercy and allow him to live against the wish of the crowd.
