Above: The Amphitheatre, where gladiators fought and died, and where inter-city competitions took place. It was closed for a 10 year period after a particularly brutal fight, not between the competitors, but between the citizens of both towns, with numerous dead and many injuries. But gladiators dying, not a problem.

Pictures 1 to 4 show the gladiator training area (1) and inside the Amphitheatre
Pictures 8 to 10 are views outside and inside a prominent Roman bath house
Pictures 11 to 13 show three of several paintings inside the brothel, meant to assist patrons in their choices
