The world of ancient Romans abounded in a number of amazing curiosities and information. The source of knowledge about the life of the Romans are mainly works left to us by ancient writers or discoveries. The Romans left behind a lot of strange information and facts that are sometimes hard to believe.
Roman mosaic showing the tigress and cubs. The object is dated to the 4th century CE and was probably found in Italy. Currently, the object is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art in the USA.
Roman small statuette depicting a gladiator. The object dates from the 1st century CE and shows the so-called “thrax”, who in the arena was usually armed with a short sword (broken here) and a small shield protecting the chest.
