There is nowhere more brutal and violent than the Pit. It’s the place where, as the lanista Batiatus (John Hannah) said, “where you needn’t follow rules because none exist.” It is where men come to kill or be killed while bystanders bet on their fates.  It’s also a proving ground for legends like Oenomaus (Peter Mensah) and Spartacus. Fans now have an opportunity to own the same sica sword used by the original Spartacus (Andy Whitfield) to fight Ixion in the first-season episode “The Thing in the Pit” from Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The weapon itself, which features a curved blade (pictured above), is available at VIP Fan Auctions to the winning bidder.
