Gladiator - Secutor (1)
Unpainted 28mm pewter metal miniature
The Secutor’s name translates as “persecutor”. The equipment he bore in the arena was a full helmet, a large rectangular shield (scutum), a greave for his left leg, a manica on his right arm and a gladius. The smooth helmet worn by the Secutor had limited vision with it’s tiny openings for eyes and was limited by the weight of his equipment. The Secutor was often paired with the Retiarius where strength was matched against agility.
