Ancient Minutus I

Julius Caesar staged a show with what unprecedented number of gladiators?

In 65 BC, Julius Caesar commemorated the death of his father with a display of 350 pairs of silver clad gladiators. The Munera, or Gladiator Games, are thought to have originated with the Campanians and Etruscans. The earliest games served a sacrificial function by appeasing the dead with the slaughter of the living.
