Gladiator padded arm protection (manica)

The best warriors of Ancient Rome enter the sand of Colosseum’s arena, sprinkled with blood and swear. They do not participate in the wars, but there are no fighters better than they are. Their business is to fight and die in glory of the Emperor.

Ave, Caesar, morituri te salutant!

Their husky voices resound over the Arena. They are worn and armed in different ways; though there are similar features in outfit - breechcloths and manica – padded armguard with mitten.

How do we know that? Besides multiple paintings and descriptions, in the 79 year B.C., Vesuvius buried also gladiatorial barracks, full of outfits, apart from other building of Pompeii. Among these outfits, remnants of manicaes had been found there.
