The Report on the Gladiatorial Combats of 174 BC

Francis X. Ryan


The four extant Livian passages reporting on gladiatorial combats are discussed; the focus lies upon textual problems in the fourth passage, but in briefer compass a solution to a textual problem in the first is proposed and the reliability of the number transmitted in the third is defended. There is also a short preliminary discussion of the sources available and of the sources actually used in the transmission of this information.
