In 73 BC, in the heart of Rome's Mediterranean empire, a slave named Spartacus ignited one of the most violent episodes of slave resistance in the history of the Roman Empire, indeed in the world annals of slavery. This volume organizes original translations of 80 Greek and Latin sources into topical chapters that look at the daily lives of slaves trained as gladiators and those who laboured on farms in Italy and Sicily, including accounts of revolts that preceded and anticipated that of Spartacus. In a carefully crafted introductory essay, Brent D. Shaw places Spartacus in a broader context of first and second century BCE Roman Italy and Sicily and explains why his story continues to be a popular symbol of rebellion today.
