6 Titus Lucius From the Ludus Maximus 23 Caesar Street Rome 20 April 156AD Dear Uncle Servus Lucius, I haven t seen you for almost two summers now, and I hope you can forgive me and hear what I have been doing. I ve been a gladiator for ten months now, and believe me, that s good going. None of the other gladiators I trained with are still alive. I am writing to you to tell you that I have been taken to Rome. In fact I was brought to this gladiator school - Ludus Maximus (the best in Rome!), from my home town of Herculaneum, after I was taken prisoner for stealing a pair of shoes. It s not fair that some people have such easy lives and people like me have to struggle to survive. You only get a few months training, and that s just with wooden weapons if we had proper ones, I d have attacked the guards and run for it! You can t choose which type of gladiator to be, but I was lucky enough to train as a Samnite. I m quite well protected, with a huge shield and a strong helmet. I ve no chest armour, though so if a stab gets past my shield to my stomach, I m a goner. I remember my first fight at the Colosseum I was terrified! But with the slaves using leather whips and red hot irons to force you into the arena, you don t hang around for long. The cheers from the crowd were overwhelming and I was stunned for a while. But then my opponent, a huge Retriarii, charged at me roaring like a lion! Thankfully, he tripped over a stone on the arena floor and I was able to pin him down with my sword. I ve lasted five fights now four more than most. Mind you, I only survived the last one because the crowd gave the thumbs up, showing they wanted me to live. I just hope the crowd goes on supporting me. Then, maybe one day I ll be rewarded with my freedom. I feel like I have paid my debt to society for my crime. I have entertained them and shown that I never give up. Most days are very boring, spending ours practising the same old moves. Sometimes I even want to fight just to have something else to do! The food is dull, except on the day before a fight. Last time, we had a huge feast and most were sick from eating too much! I would love to hear how you and your family are. Maybe one day I will see you again, and be able to earn your trust. However, I suspect you already know the fate of the gladiator! Please pass my greetings on to my father and mother. Yours sincerely Titus Lucius 6
