Roman tombstone of a gladiator named Lupercus, which was financed by his wife Theodora. The man was a gladiator of type thraex, as evidenced by his visualization.
The man is armed with a curved sword (sica) and a rectangular shield with a medusa face. The tombstone scene also shows a little boy named Apollonis, who may have been the son of a gladiator; the boy hands Lupercus his helmet. On the tombstone, we also see a cheerful little dog.
Object dated to the 2nd century CE. It is now in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki (Greece).
