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.
