Format: Hardcover
This is an enjoyable little book, very nicely illustrated. (If it matters, the cover illustration is a relief carving of a gladiator poised between two wild beasts--and NOT the elaborate helmet shown above. Perhaps that cover is on a different edition?)

The book is aimed at the general reader, rather than the specialist or the hard-core archaeology buff. While it covers the subject well, it doesn't do so exhaustively. Occasionally, one would welcome more detail: for example, instead of cataloguing ALL of the Pompeiian grafitti relating to gladiators, the text discusses only a small sampling of them. Nor is there much discussion of how Pompeii's gladitorial entertainments may have differed from those of other Roman cities of the time.

Still, as a basic introduction to the role gladitorial games played in ancient Pompeii, this book has its merits.

Informative but a tad disappointing. The book is quite small in size and therefore loses some of its appeal.
