Gladiator

Gladiator combat styleEdit

Dimachaerus

The fighting style of the dimachaeri gladiator involved close combat using two swords, either curved scimitars (siccae) or straight bladed short swords (gladius). Both swords were employed for attacking and defending and it is generally understood that these gladiators would have been supremely skilled to wield two blades at once. Little else is known about this class of gladiator. It is likely that the dimachaeri gladiators would have been matched against other dimachaeri as well as heavily armored opponents to make a good match. They are known to have been paired against hoplomachus (a shielded opponent in the style of a Greek hoplite soldier) as well as oplomachus (according to Justin Lipsius this was one of two designations of Samnite gladiator who fought matches with a short sword, rectangular shield, armored greaves and helmet). Clearly, the dimachaeri was paired as a lighter fighter against more heavily armored opponents and was expected to penetrate their defense to beat and kill them.
