Spartacus Funeral Games.

Spartacus' Gladiator Games were gladiatorial fights created to honor the death of Crixus and the rebels who had fallen. Spartacus, Naevia, SaxaNasir, Rabanus, Pollux, Lugo and Gannicus fought as gladiators against Tiberius and his men.

The GamesEdit

Spartacus addressed the crowd, and then the first Roman prisoner: Mettius, Tiberius' bodyguard, was brought out. Mettius refuses to fight 'for their entertainment', and Spartacus kills him. Two others were then brought out to fight him. After brawling with the soldiers for a while, Spartacus crossed his swords into the ground, facing them again without his weapons. Spartacus takes one of the men and makes him land between the two crossed swords, splitting his neck. He then faces the other soldier and knocks him to his knees. Spartacus pushes the man forward and finally

Feeling competitive, Gannicus faces three of the captives to honor Crixus. At first it seems they are going to be victorious until Gannicus throws himself over one of them and push's them to the edge, pushing on of them over to their death. Gannicus then overpowers the two and beheads the last one. The games continue with Rabanus, Pollux, Lugo and Saxa and another gladiator taking their turns killing Tiberius' men. Nasir takes his turn after to avenge Agron. While Nasir is fighting his opponent, Caesar arrives with an offer to exchange 500 captures rebels for the life of Tiberius, to which Spartacus agrees. Finally, Naevia fights Tiberius, eventually gaining the upper hand and severely wounding him with the sword he used to kill Crixus. Before she can deal the final blow, Spartacus returns and tell her and crowd about Crassus' exchange.

Reluctantly, Naevia only punches Tiberius in the face, telling him than soon she would finally take his life. Later, the "arena" is used to lite Crixus' funeral pyre.

Historical ContextEdit

Historically after Crixus fell to Gellius and Publicola, Spartacus captured 200-300 of their soldiers and made them fight each other to the death as Gladiators. The Event was called The Funeral Games.
