Two gladiators at the end of the fight. This is the scene of the last fresco found in the Regio V.
"It is very probable that this place was frequented by gladiators - declares the General Director Massimo Osanna - We are in the Regio V, not far from the barracks of the gladiators. In this fresco it is interesting to see the extremely realistic representation of the wounds. We do not know what the final outcome of this fight was. You could die or have grace. In this case there is a gesture that the wounded trace makes with his hand, perhaps, to implore salvation; it is the gesture of ad locutia, usually done by the emperor or the general to grant grace. "
