Regio VIII

Gladiators' Barracks


The big square with the porticos behind the stage of the theater was originally used as a foyer for the public during the breaks of the shows. 


The general lack of buildings due to the earthquake of 62 A.D. caused it to be transformed into a gymnasium and hotel for the gladiators and their families. That's why it is called Gladiators' Barracks. The body of a fettered slave and that of a bejewelled matron gone to see a young gladiator were found during the excavation.
