[The letters seem rather to be TVL. standing fortuUtt i.e., victorias, followed by a numeral. Overbeck, i. 175.1 THE AMPHITHEATRE. 233 adversary is called Nobilior, and reckons XI victories.Both are armed alike with a light lance, a round buckler(parma) elegantly ornamented, and helmets, with vizorswhich cover the whole face, and more resemble the helmetsof the Middle Ages than the Eoman helmet as it is usuallyrepresented. The right arms of both and the thigh ofNobilior are protected by a sort of armour resembling suc-cessive bands of iron. These two gladiators are clothed inthe inducula, a short and light cloak which formed part ofthe dress of the Roman knights ; the legs are naked. Bebrixhas shoes resembling those now in use, but Nobilior wearsthe semiplotia, a kind of hunting shoe bound with thongs, . round the leg.* The horse is covered with the sagma, asquare saddle-cloth in use among the Eoman cavalry; thecrupper is painted red. The action of the figures is good.Bebrix appears to have aimed at Nobilior a blow with hislance, who having received it on the buckler, attacks in histurn Bebrix, who now places himself on the defensive. The group next in succession represents two gladiatorswhose names are defaced. The first wears a helmet havinga vizor, much ornaniented, with the long buckler (scutum). * Similai to the moccasins of the Indians or the Scotch brogue.
