I myself know the names of just three slaves—Spartacus himself, the fabulous Aesop, who is supposed to have been a slave, and the philosopher Epictetus, who was one of those learned slaves whom the Roman plutocrats liked to have among their retinue.

Matias rated it liked it Feb 18, Trivia About The Gladiators. Paperbackpages. Books by Arthur Koestler. Unfortunately, the book does not live up to the promising cover art.
Espartaco es el Che Guevara de un siglo antes de Cristo. So many of the factors that Crassus mentions are very applicable now. It’s a terrific book about the development of social ideas and movements revolutionsthe politics involved, etc.
Crixus est sans fond.

It contrasts the conscious self-interest of privileged elites with the self-interest of the masses and espattaco that there is one fundamental ‘law’ that operates beneath the surface of the facades of gladiadoes and ‘patriotism’, namely the fatalistic assertion of the leader of the fierce and melancholic Celts, the gladiator Crixus, that the law is simply, “Eat, or be eaten”!

Plus an oddly Old Western font for the title. Far more enjoyable a read than Darkness at noon.
Read this book in the Spanish version published by “Circulo esparfaco Lectores” ages ago. Interesting take on the story.
