Gladiator - Thraex (Thracian)(1)
Unpainted 28mm pewter metal miniature
Thraex: The Thraex type of gladiator is derived from the Thracian soldiers that were taken prisoner in the Mithridates’ Wars. The Thraex wore a full helm, a small square shield (parmula), Greaves, and manica on the arms. The weapon wielded by the Thraex was the sica which was a curved sword designed to reach behind the large shield of their primary opponent, the Myrmillo.
