잘 보존된 검투사 묘사 프레스코 폼페이에서 발견


    피비린내 나는 상대편에게 승리하는 검투사를 묘사하는 잘 보존된 프레스코가 이탈리아 폼페이에서 발견되었다.


고고학자들은 이 검투사들이 자주 드나드는 주점의 지하실에 걸려있었던 것으로 보고 있다. 주막집 주인이나 매춘부들을 위한 윗층도 있었다.




폼페이우스는 AD 79년 베수비우스 산이 폭발하여 로마 도시와 그 거주자들이 산채로 화산재 밑에 묻혔고, 이로 인해 세계에서 가장 많이 찾는 고고학적 유적지 중 하나가 되었다.


프레스코는 밝은 금색과 청색과 붉은색을 유지한 듯, 한 사람만이 승리를 거두는 피비린내 나는 광경을 그리고 있다.


챙이 넓은 헬멧을 쓴 '무르밀로' 파이터가 한 손에는 커다란 직사각형 방패를 들고 다른 한 손에는 검을 들고 서 있다.


그의 뒤에는 상처로 고통 받고 있는 상대편 방패가 있고, 땅에 떨어져 있는 것처럼 보인다.


'우리는 이 싸움이 어떻게 끝났는지 모른다. 검투사들이 죽거나 자비를 베풀었다.'라고 폼페이 유적관리자 마시모 오산나가 말했다.


'특히 흥미로운 것은 상처의 극히 사실적인 표현인데, 예를 들면 성공하지 못한 검투사의 손목과 가슴에 있는 상처는 피가 흘러나와 그의 각반을 적시고 있는 것이다.

Behind him is his opponent's, known as the Thraex', shield, who stands across suffering from wounds and appears to be falling to the ground.


'We do not know how this fight ended. Gladiators were killed or shown mercy,' Pompeii's director Massimo Osanna said.


'What is particularly interesting is the extremely realistic representation of the wounds, such as the one on the wrist and chest of the unsuccessful gladiator, from which the blood runs, wetting his leggings


The Orto dei fuggiaschi (The garden of the Fugitives) shows the 13 bodies of victims who were buried by the ashes as they attempted to flee Pompeii during the 79 AD eruption of the Vesuvius volcano
