THE POINT OF THE STORY
Gannicus (Dustin Clare) was legendary as a gladiator, and when he won his freedom in Gods of the Arena, the event commemorated by his mentor, Oenomaus (Peter Mensah), who presents Gannicus with a rudis (wooden sword) engraved with the stories of his great victories. Gannicus’s screen-used rudis featured in Spartacus: Vengeance – as well as a sawed-off duplicate used for visual effects (see photo above) is now being made available to the fan who posts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. It is an awesome piece of Spartacus history, which belonged to one of the series’ greatest characters. Created specifically for production by the Spartacus props department, the etchings on the rudis are clearly visible, making it a treasured piece of the Starz epic.
