The gladiator Thracian
was considered lightly armored. He carried a very small round or square shield
called Parma and a very curved sword called Sica. He wore a metal helmet with
a large crest representing a mithological beast called Grifone.
He wore leg guards on both legs and these guards they were very tall, covering
up to the tops of his thighs.
For contrast, the Thracian used to combat against an heavy armored gladiator
as the Hoplomacus. Wanna Buy the Thracian
